A shift in the architecture industry's focus in the last 20 years toward ecological concerns, long-term value, and user comfort has coincided with significant new developments in digital controls, actuators, shading typologies, building physics simulation capability, and material performance. This collision has afforded architects an expanded set of opportunities to create architecture that can respond directly to environmental conditions, resulting in innovative facade designs that quickly become landmarks for their cities. Fortmeyer and Linn trace the historical development of active facades in modern architecture, and reveal how contemporary architects and consultants design and test these systems.ᅠ

Featuring 25 case sties of facades that respond dynamically to the climate, this book is truly global. From the Beijing National Aquatic Centre, to the Abu Dhabi Investment Council Headquarters, to the four Australian projects incled, the buildings are united by their commitment to both energy efficiency and memorable architecture. With the case sties complemented by four essays, authors Russell Fortmeyer and Charles Linn have created a fascinating portrait of the history and potential trajectory of kinetic architecture.
