Kinetic architecture. Architecture evolved in the belief that the static, permanent forms of traditional architecture were no longer suitable for use in times of major change. Kinetic architecture was supposed to be dynamic, adaptable, capable of being added to or reduced, and even disposable. Archigram, Futurism, Metabolism, and the work of Friedman and Fuller have been suggested as examples of Kinetic architecture.
