Building Gestures


The Facade has being concieved as a rigid surface with openings. Every period in history is represented by different typologies/configurations that can be recognised and categorised. Nowadays we live in an interactive world our buildings cannot stay rigid, they should be responsive to different environments.


Applying the same strategy to our facade we can achieve responsiveness. The facade reads the inputs and create “gestures” that perform a function. So the facade can be triggered by the amount of light, the human proximity, the need for ventilation or the sound in its surroundings, and just as a nervous system works, transform those stimules in motion functio
