Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Oxon, England ; New York : Routledge / Taylor & Francis Group, 2011Description: xiii, 178 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm.Content type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9780521133074 ; 0521133076.Other title: State change.Subject(s): Facades -- Designs and plans | Motion in architecture | Architectural design | Engineering, Architecture February2019DDC classification: 729.1
Contents:
1. Movement at the periphery -- 2. Kinetic precedent -- 3. Systems, fields and reflexivity -- 4. Kinetic art -- 5. Decision planes -- 6. Experiments with kinetic pattern -- 7. All at sea : a provisional taxonomy -- 8. State change.
Summary: Architectural facades now have the potential to be literally kinetic, through automated sunscreens and a range of animated surfaces. This book explores the aesthetic potential of these new types of moving facades.€From critique of theory and practice in architecture, discourse within kinetic arts and the generation of a series of computer animations, a theory of composition and a language of design for kinetic architectural facades is developed
