Design approach

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 Skin by imitating the function of pores and pigments.



Inspiration

Open systems like organism control  the exchange with their environment to maintain the internal equilibrium. Is it not about time for architecture to do the same? Adaptive facades can reduce the energetic need of buildings and create a healthier room climate.
