Today I am looking at a very interesting window video, Modules For A Responsive Facade.
Wow, I am really intrigued by this project. I like the inspiration patterns and the focus on positive and negative spaces of this project. The window reminds me of a Kaleidoscope, but the shapes are not random. I think the grey polygons in the window would look amazing with colored or patterned glass. Don’t you agree?
The project tries to negotiate the visual boundary between inside and outside by making the facade dynamic and modular. The modules engages with the surroundings with ever changing interplay of solid and voids, positive and negative , light and dark, relief and depression.
Mechanical movements also provide a learning opportunity for understanding three dimensional geometric transformations and exploring possibilities of a rotating polygon.
The idea was to create a reactive building skin. The design uses modular units which can become transparent and opaque based on a sensor input (ex. LDR ,Proximity,Camera ). or using mobile devices.
