optimizing facade performance

Kinetic Facade

Partner: Fan Lu

This is a project tries to explore an climate-responsive kinetic facade which can adapt to various climate conditions. We developed an adaptive system which can perform real-time reaction to the environment and further optimize the annual building performance while at the same time keep the flexibility to accommodate various programs and needs.

Metric of Operational Angles

Metrics that calculate the percentage of floor area where illuminance > 300 lux in a day under multiple options of facade panel angles. Through the metrics, we are able to identify the most optimized panel angle for each hour in a day and further develop an operate manual for each day.
