The Kinetower is Kinetura’s concept for a building whose facade elements responds to the sunlight or for the user inside. The elements have the ability open and close in a very fascinating way. The bending of the metal material on the building's exterior makes it seem as it would be from made from fabric.

Like a curtain, this flexible metal facade allows the building to transform while providing a spectacular view. The designers of the Kinetower Xaveer Claerhout and Barbare van Biervliet show in their video how light can interact with architecture. Stats for Malleable Skyscrapers Trending: Older & Average
