FLUID ARCHITECTURE
IM DOING A THESIS ON THIS SUBJECT
IT BASICALLY IS ABOUT DESIGNING A STRUCTURE WHICH BECOMES MULTI FUNCTIONAL, SUSTAINABLE BY STRUCTURALLY RE-CONFIGURING THE STRUCTUREIF
ANY BODY HAS ANY USEFULL INFORMATION REGARDING FLUID ARCHITECTURE THEN PLEASE DO REPLY

AN EXAMPLE OF STRUCTURALL FLUIDITY IS GLASGOW TOWER LONDON
ALSO MILWAUKEE MUSEUM HAS SOME USE OF FLUIDITY IN IT , IE, IN THE WINGS WHICH OPEN AND CLOSE TO SHADE THE HARSH SUNLIGHT FROM DIRECTLY ENTERING THE INTERIORS

A chapter of my dissertation investigated 'Intelligent Kinetic Systems' i.e. Kinetic Architecture. So I can help you but you need to be more specific.

As a native of England, the Glasgow Tower in London seems a mystery. Are you talking about Neil Spillers project in the late eighties?

sorry my mistake
im talking about glasgow tower scotland

im studying fluid architecture in terms tht the structure is structurally flexible and hence it can adapt to climatic changes space expansion
and sustainibility
it is some what similar to kinetic architecture
