Prabir, try the web site www.interactivearchitecture.org and also try the AD magazine there were loads of issues published on the above topic.cyberarchitecture 1 and 2, Collective Intelligence in Design etc., try researching on smart materials as well. i have a good book called smart materials and technologies. it just gives you the real inside on dynamic architecture.
however this is regarding how dynamic architecture is achieved through new technological advancements. as architects we strive to create spaces which are dynamic not through technology and materials but with the play of solids and voids, light and shadow.etc. it is my firm belief that these aspects should not be ignored in the light of new scientific marvels. is the da ivnci tower in Dubai such a good example? is it architecture or just a piece of good engineering ?
