Shading devices for a Façade, is a student research assignment, still under development, by IAAC MAA students Francisco Marmolejo, Marisa Margariti and Mathew Owen for the Designing Associativity seminar. These devices will open or close as they collect data from solar sensors connected to them. The goal for this assignment is to implement data flow into a physical object in order to investigate the relationship between information, design, and fabrication using parametric software.
