The aim of this exercise is to create a dynamic animation mimicking a responsive facade system. This is in order to visualize the solution proposed underlining a reactive logic. A 3D geometrical system was developed through a series of algorithms in Grasshopper producing a responsive parametric facade.



The facade illustrated reacts to sunlight with undulating opening and closing panels thus limiting and controlling the heat build up in a building. As direct sunlight hits the facade the panels which are arranged in a modular grid system retract and close in order to limit the amount solar gain in the building and thus reduce the need to un-sustainable air-conditioning.
