The past decades have witnessed a growing interest in the knowledge acquisition of smart materials and their applications in different fields, especially in the field of architecture and building technology. Smart materials may not be relatively new, but researchers work to develop smart materials and compose a system that controls and guides the materials to create a living environment with more adaptive qualities and less negative impacts. The research aims to explore the qualities and advantages of smart material systems in the field of architecture, to better understand the impact smart material systems have on the design and construction processes, and to explore the way to create architecture with better adaptive characteristics, to ultimately reach the state of “adaptiveness” providing the optimal environment for the users, reflected on the structural, climatic, and architectural performances.
