Not surprisingly, my experiences with the Milwaukee Art Museum prompted me to research more examples of kinetic architecture. I came up with fewer buildings than I had hoped but was again taken in by another project: Gestures by Sarah Bonnemaison and Christine Macy. These women’s take on movement in architecture is strikingly different than that of Calatrava. Instead of making the structure itself move, they used motion as the beginning inspiration for the building. Bonnemaison and Macy recorded dancers’ movements and translated those 3D paths into habitable structures. They call their “materialized movements” Gestures.
