Kinetic Building Envelopes for Energy Efficiency: Modeling and Products
Adaptive Building Envelope was discussed in recent years and became a possible solution for energy efficiency. We conducted a study of kinetic building envelopes for energy efficiency in the context of an interdisciplinary design & modeling course in 2010 Fall. The goals of these experimental design & modeling projects are to explore the possibilities of motion modes, the integration with whole envelopes and the potentials of applications, and to provide insight into sustainable design. This paper provides an experimental account of kinetic logics and products, and summarizes kinetic motion patterns and potential applications.
