title ICHTYOMORPH - Design and development of a fish-skin double fašade system for freeform super tall buildings using Parametric Design Tools

summary Parametric design implies a whole new paradigm of non standard design through the propagation of the difference, the repetition of variation. The ability to control variation and adaptation to local conditions allows more precise yet complex designs. This paper describes a research project designing double skin fašade systems for tall buildings using a parametric approach. These designs are tested later through rapid prototyping techniques. This research aims its design towards an adjustable fašade structure, articulated according to various complex geometrical conditions on the fašade of a building. The skin is conceived as a light, flexible, reconfigurable composition responding to different criteria regarding the design, its environment or the program. It achieves this through different levels of control on different scales of the project, by embedding several layers of parametric features, which are nested one inside the other, in order to produce the overall rainscreen surface of the tower.
