Brief :

The project relies on evolutionary solving algorithms, in conjunction with Grasshopper’s Ladybug to determine the best 
iteration of the facade with reduced solar radiation and maximum view. 

design concept :

Continuous Facade:

Smooth ruled surfaces that allow geometrical continuity between horizontal and vertical position

Used to control natural light distribution in interior spaces (sunshades) and avoid direct harsh sunlight.

Three-Dimensional Screen Walls: 

Outer-rotation warped blocks are assembled From Simple Associations To Complex network formations. The thickness and 
density are controlled By the organizational pattern.
