Dynamic Facades - Felix Weber - Glazing & Shading

With increasingly stringent energy codes and architects’ and clients’ desire for high transparency facades and optimum daylighting conditions in buildings, dynamic shading strategies are increasingly interesting for high-performance buildings. However, the integration of mechanical or electrical shading devices in facades increases complexity, first and maintenance cost.

The presentation will give an overview of existing and upcoming technologies for dynamic glazing and shading products; their advantages and disadvantages. Case studies including the Al Bahr Towers showcase the potential and highlight the challenges and possible solutions to successfully implement dynamic shading elements in facades.
