Where: Scheman Center, 1st Floor North, Ames, IA

OVERVIEW

Building facades, like the human skin, have to mediate a large variety of external parameters and conditions, such as sun, heat, wind, water. Facades’ which can change according to these conditions based on their material, mechanical or kinetic properties have been an architect’s dream for many decades. See for example the polyvalent wall of Mike Davies in the early 1980s. Like the lens of the camera or eye these façade should be able to adapt to changing external or internal conditions. Material development, digital manufacturing and computational advances in respect to parametric environmental building performance modeling have advanced thus far, that adaptive facades are the current and future innovations constructed to mediate, sun, light and heat to provide more energy efficiency, more comfort, more conceptual freedom and more opportunities for occupants to adjust their environment to their individual requirements.
