The common definition of responsive architecture is a class of architecture or building that demonstrates an ability to alter its form, to continually reflect the environmental conditions that surround it. (CABS) can be identified as a sub domain of responsive architecture, with special emphasis on dynamic features in facades and roofs. Climate adaptive building shells [CABS] can repeatedly and reversibly change some of its functions, features or behaviour over time in response to changing performance requirements and variable boundary conditions, with the aim of improving overall building performance. For example: by incorporating responsive technologies into the structural systems of buildings architects have the ability to tie the shape of a building directly to its environment. Thus, the thesis paper research on how building adapts to the climatic change and it also gives an idea for the future building that could adapt responsive architecture and March towards a modern living standard.
