title Controlling Kinetic Cladding Components in Building Façades: A Case for Autonomous Movement
source Rethinking Comprehensive Design: Speculative Counterculture, Proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2014) / Kyoto 14-16 May 2014, pp. 129–138
summary "The movement of building façade cladding is usually used to control buildings’ exposure to environmental conditions such as direct sunlight, noise and wind. Until recently, technology and cost constraints allowed for only limited types of façade cladding movement. One of the main restrictions stemmed from the limitations that architects face in designing and controlling movement scenarios in which each façade or cladding element moves autonomously. The introduction of parametric design tools for architectural design, combined with the advent of inexpensive sensor/actuator microcontrollers, made it possible to explore ways to overcome this limitation. Autonomous movement of building façade cladding elements has several potential benefits. One of the main feasible advantages of this type of movement is that it can deal with changing external and interior local conditions in different parts of the façade by individually controlled movement, by preceding reaction or flock behaviour. Thus, it can increase significantly the performance of the building façade. This paper presents new results from an ongoing research study that is examining the potential of autonomous movement of façade cladding elements. It compares the environmental performance of centrally controlled kinetic façade elements and a prototypic façade made of autonomously controlled elements.
