The Brisbane Airport Kinetic Parking Garage facade features countless cubed elements that appear rippled when affected by the region's turbulent weather patterns.

The structure is created by Ned Kahn and UAP, who have built an eco-friendly installation piece made from aluminum. Thousands of suspended panels are bolted to a steel frame made up of eight storeys. The panels shift with changing air currents, giving this modern architecture piece a different appearance depending on the day's weather.

Exploring architecture's relationship to the natural environment, designer Ned Kahn implements his intriguing concept at the garage. The metal facade is almost fluid, resembling the properties of reflected water or molten silver when kinetic. This modern architecture piece marries sustainability and aesthetics, making for a memorable sight for airport visitors. Stats for Weather Distorted Facades Trending: Older & Warm
