title Designing an Interactive Architectural Element for a Responsive House
source SIGraDi 2012 [Proceedings of the 16th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Brasil - Fortaleza 13-16 November 2012, pp. 369-372
summary This paper presents the features and the reasoning followed in the process of designing a programmable architectural element for a prototype house – a interactive façade involving a matrix of programmable windows. The façade contributes to the precise adjustment of view, airflow, solar radiation, and heat, by allowing the automated modification of the chromatism, the angle and the light transmittance of each individual window.
