summary The paper represents the concept of an abstract model of the Responsive Building Envelope (RBE), founded on pre-programmed material’s behaviour. The assumed model of the responsive building envelope is based on the idea of material autonomous agents that control default parameters of building’s energies like ventilation, humidity, light volume, radiation, temperature, etc., by materials’ geometry deformation. The agent is a material system, built with the Electroactive Polymers (EAPs) actuators which react to the environment’s fluctuations continuously and independently from other agents. The model of a responsive envelope is a cluster of self-reliant units which control the primary characteristic of the building environment in an analogous way to the homeostasis system of a living organism. By decentralization the system becomes more stable and reliable. The CFD simulation was created from the schematic model of the RBE’s performance to test the presented design concepts.
