Kinetic Architecture: Designs for Active Envelopes is an essential resource for architects, engineers, students, and researchers seeking an in-depth study of how architectural facades dynamically respond to interior and exterior conditions in a manner that saves energy, without sacrificing human comfort. The book specifically focuses on facades with dynamic components, such as active shading devices and hydronic systems, which form an emerging and significant new development in architecture. Russell Fortmeyer and Charles Linn's essays weave together the historical roots of these very special facades, informed by the authors' unique theoretical insight. This original thinking is buttressed by detailed case studies of the facade technology and design expertise figuring in 27 buildings from around the globe, including many important structures whose envelopes have never been documented before.
