Abstract
This research addresses the problem of dynamic structures seen from their structural morphology and function in the field of architecture. Dynamic structures and specifically scissor systems have great potential as skin for buildings requiring large beams and others changes required for its functionality. Deployable membrane structures as transformable architecture design requires integration between the structural and architectural factors. This new architecture of lightness and tension handle ...
