The aim of the project is to create a dynamic animation of a selected facade system. The purpose of the animation is to visualize the form finding process through a series of sequences underlining its design logic and performance.

Parametric Skin

The inspiration for the brick facade from Behet Bondzio Lin Architekten is the alabaster fold of the Beethoven statue by Max Klinger, which is located in the Leipzig Bilder Museum. Max Klinger created a paradoxical perception here.

Following this image, Behet Bondzio Lin Architekten employ six special stones with a gradient that increases in gradient, creating a seemingly moving facade of light and shadow. The analogy to a light cloth over which the wind blows arises.
