summary The paper describes a novel technique for creating flat, bi-layer, compliant mechanisms for adaptive building components to be used in solar shading. Micro-actuation of these periodic, flexible devices cause innumerable three-dimensional micro-loops to erupt in the panel surface, permitting passage of diffused light while maintaining visual privacy and shade.
keywords Compliant mechanisms; biomimicry; passive energy design; solar shading; autonomous control; computer aided manufacture; parametric modeling.
