Kinetic Solutions for Responsive and Communicative Building Skin

Risultato della ricerca: Article

Abstract

The skin of buildings represents the first level of communication between construction,man and environment. In this relationship, the concept of communication acquires different values,because it can be applied both to the architectural field in relation to the shape, and to the perceptiveand communicative sphere, aimed to transmission of messages or even to the interaction of thearchitectural envelope with the user and the environment. This brings us back to the energy andsustainability aspects, since the primary role as a separation and filter layer of the building façadesis that of shielding. The solution with a kinetic façade constitutes not only a possibility of climaticmediation between outside and inside, guaranteeing ventilation and protection from solar radiation,but allows to redesign the aesthetic, communicative and perceptive appearance of a building. Thecontribution focuses on the communicative and perceptive potential of the façades and the ongoingexperimentations of the new smart materials applied to these.
