building type for dynamic architecture
Zunaira, I assume "dynamic architecture" simply means any form of mobile architecture from traditional tents to modern mobile homes.

In a sense, dynamic architecture could also mean any temporary structure.

The term "Dynamic Architecture" could be an active/bold/vibrant form, space, circulation or mix of all. And with this one can design any building. We have skyscrappers, museums, cinemas, and many more projects...

Muhammad, an illuminating post, as you appear to be advocating "conceptual architecture" (a form of "conceptual art") where words replace the creative process and the design itself.

I believe without concept the Architecture is pointless. As the main topic has a vast & rich meanings in it and any building type can fall in this category, unless one has a specific inclination towards certain type.

Dynamic architecture could be of Santiago Calatrava, Nervi, Gehry, Zaha Hadid or it could have different approach like tadao ando, Le corb...

You need to decide and understand whether you need your building to look dynamic or to have a dynamic experience or you can have both of them also...

Muhammad, There is a world of difference between "concept" and "conceptual".

"Concept" is another word for `an idea` and is used to describe the primary theme of a design.

Whereas, "Conceptual" refers to something without physical existence and usually means an idea within the mind`s eye. And I use the phrase "the mind`s eye" because most people have been taught that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", whereas, what this phrase really means is that beauty is in the mind`s eye and therefore cannot be questioned because it has no existence.

Therefore, all too many avante garde artists (starting with the use of men`s wall urinal in the 1920s) use ordinary everyday objects and then claim that these things conceptually represent their mind`s eye and that therefore these ordinary objects are aesthetic works of art. This is of course nonsense, because like the Hans Anderson story for children of "The Kings New Clothes" not one of the adults in the story will admit that the king is not wearing any clothes, because to tell the truth means death.

The easy way to tell the difference between concept and conceptual, is that a concept can be expressed and usually is expressed directly in a design, whether the concept is the design itself, or the design process,

Whereas, something conceptual cannot be expressed directly because there is nothing there, rather like the proverbial vampire in a mirror.

both of u guys! first i wanna pay thanks to u for ur responses, now i wanna explain my theme to dynamic architecture, i wanna design a building that will rotate or change its form and the person who view the building have a new look at every time and the person inside the building have different view in its surrounding

Zunaira, interesting design idea, although a simple rotating building (I am thinking of the 1960s / 1970s Post Office Tower in London with a slowly rotating restaurant at the top (seasickness? motion sickness?) will enable an everchanging view for the people inside.

But from what you said, I immediately imagined a core with rotating rings, so that different parts of the building rotated at different speeds and so the building would appear to everchanging from the outside, rather like a 3D model of the Solar System with the planets revolving about the Sun.
