The third influential development is that of autocatalytic processes. Autocatalytic processes can be defined as reaction product itself being the catalyst for its own reaction. In context here, such processes describe how the pace of technological change is accelerating because computers and other computational artifacts are now able to assist in the development of novel and improved components and products. Computer software is used to design better hardware, for example. In other words, the process is “autocatalytic” in that smart machines are helping to build even smarter ones.

Classic examples of this type of spatial optimization are common in such spaces as convention centers, banquet halls, > Fig. 1 Interactive Architecture / Physical Change // Trends in Kinetic Architecture > Fig. 1: MIT Kinetic Design Group, Domus Magazine Competition/Boeing. 32 33 Interactive Architecture / Physical Change // Trends in Kinetic Architecture 34 Multifunction design can be defined as how movable physical architectural objects can share a common physical space to provide the means for a plurality of uses.

The primary function of this type of kinetic structures is to control the larger architectural system or building, in response to change. Embedded systems can often take the place of other systems used to control the building as a whole, in terms of adaptability to external environmental conditions. An example of this would be to respond to variable seismic and wind conditions. One can also think of these systems as having a number of smaller elements, coupled with an intelligent logic for performing action that can allow the entire system as a whole to change its form.
