    Kinetic Architecture

    By Daniel Childs

    So I'm heading to Vancover, BC in the spring to do a semester "abroad" and study urban architecture, kinetic architecture and escape the mundane college town of Eugene. Until then I'm supposed to find a kinetic architecture case study/precedent to present once we get there. Does anyone know of any good buildings or examples to start with or any good places to start looking? I've got a few in mind like the Chicken Point House, and the new Dallas Theater, but if anyone has some other suggestions I'd be interested in checking them out...Thanks.

      Milwaukee Art Museum by Calatrava is the first one that comes to mind for me.
