The world where humans live in, is constantly changing. In order to interact with these conditions, it is necessary for the architects to create an environment with sufficient dynamics based on the needs and behavior of its users. Kinetic architecture allows occupants to experience new environments which could cause raising the efficiency of the buildings. Therefore, constructions with kinetic elements could serve better utilitarian purposes in different fields

In this essay by Parinaz Mansourimajoumerd and Mohammadjavad Mahdavinejad, studies are about using kinetic design and fabrication method in one project despite ordinary ways regard to the two main points; 1. The impact of Khayyam’s mathematics and astronomy on the proposed kinetic architecture and 2. Creating interaction Between Indigenous ideas and Contemporary Architecture in Khayyam Memorial Pavilion.

As a result, a model is designed and several prototypes have been built. This essay illustrates that with making a connection among architecture and other fields of study could lead designers to be more creative according to the existing limitation in each project.
