The Breathing Skins technology is inspired by organic skins, that adjust their permeability to control the flow of substances between inside and outside. Pneumatic muscles regulate the amount of incident light, views and air passing the Breathing Skins facade. more information at http://www.breathingskins.com/ , recent publication on archDaily: http://www.archdaily.com/789230/let-your-building-to-breathe-with-this-pneumatic-facade-technologyAnnotations:
demonstrate how ‘invisible’ processes (in this case air and energy flows) generated by the emerging structure can be visualised during the construction process and used to direct the ongoing fabrication process in real time
analyse the emerging structure and simulate alternative rules which can then be applied to the ongoing construction process in order to effect - evolve - the outcom
mimic some physical and formal characteristics of termite mounds
