Non-stationary points of view for looking at buildings

I've been knocking an idea about in my mind for some time, that buildings designed to be viewed from the moving view point of somebody walking, must have their bicycling counterparts, that is, buildings designed to be viewed from the speedier, arching point of view of a cyclist. Anyhow, it's a nebulous thought for the moment, but one I think is semi-ratified by these two video clips, the first taken with my iPhone as I ambled about the ambulatory of San Vitale this morning, here in Ravenna, the second shot with my iPhone as well, as I rode around Frank Gehry's Stata Centre in sunny Boston, a few weeks ago.
