Simulating structural deformation

Hey all,

I’m going to keep it short. I am working on an entry for an architectural competition that involves designing a pavilion. My project is to develop a structure with the capacity to respond to wind and forces applied by occupants to the structure. To get an idea of where I’m going with the project, you can check the early version of this project (dancing sukkah) in my portfolio; the link to which is below:

Basically, build a model of my structure, parent its elements to an armature, and use wind force-fields to being simulating how the structure would deform in response to forces coming from different directions and varying in magnitude. I realize this is vague, but if anyone can provide any insight, a resource for information on the subject, or just a thought on how they might go about doing this, I would be greatly appreciative.

Thanks all.
