There is motion in architecture. Not at first glance, but if you start looking it can be found in most aspects. Being this from the movement of people goods or materials to building parts such as doors, windows or blinds. Even by design buildings can move. See for example designs by Frank Gerry, Himmelb(l)au or the late Zaha Hadid.
However noting makes architecture move ore than light. It constantly transforms and changes the shape and appearance of buildings.

Cycle studies are the science of everyday life, as normal as it gets. Its focus is the daily routine, with its habits and rhythms as they occure in most citizens' lifes. It is the power of the normal that brings stability and the routine that ensures security. But is is the cycles's dynamic of flow and continuation that prevents life from freezing.
Cycles therefore stand for stability but are at the same time the engine of change.
With this blog the research on cycles and rhythms will be embedded in the most recent developments in technology, covering a range of areas with a focus on space-time related technologies.
The research is undertaken at CASA Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, UCL.
