This book explores the genre of transformable architecture.It examines the development of the type from ancient times to the present day,including early transformable objects,through to the most innovative solutions.The major types of transformable structures are classified and examined in terms of structural principles and transformation mechanism,in order to explore their potential applications in the field of flexible, adaptable and intelligent architecture.This book evaluates the existing ideas and projects in kinetic structures.The applications and opportunities that transformable structures can offer in the creation of dynamic responsive architectural spaces are explored.The major issues concerning the design and maintenance management of transformable architecture are evaluated and a strategic model for the design of transformable architecture is proposed. The aim of the work is to explore the potential of transformable architecture and identify relevant design management criteria that could lead to the creation of more effective, economic and appropriate transformable architecture that is more often considered as a solution in situations.
