Adapted smart facade

to the solar cycle.

2012

 

Architecture must be malleable

to adapt to changes that time

and users demand in order

to make spaces the comfortable
environments for human beings.

 

Under this premise,

a module was developed to adapt

different spaces to desired temperatures

and solar incidences.
The design of an smart opening mechanism for facades, which works with a motor that receives signals from light sensors, and allows

the facade to adapt to the high

and low sunstrokes.
