Permanent technological development leads to the search for the most utilitarian material and structural solutions in architecture. During recent decades, a large number of bioinspired materials applicable in engineering and medicine have been invented. However, nature remains the perfect creator of multifunctional structures. The main question concerns the possibility of implementing technological solutions that would enable a literal moving of the building. The assumption of responsive architecture is the ability to react to the user’s actions and external environmental stimulation. Nowadays, electronic systems that enable integral control of individual building installations in order to minimize energy losses (e.g. BMS) are commonly available. In kinetic and responsive architecture the CABS system is often used to control the façade. This paper focuses on the etymology of responsive architecture and outlines the directions of its application in the innovative technological solutions in architecture.
