What’s happening in CHANDIGARH:

Dynamic facades have the potential to add to the architectural expression of a building by visualizing the changeable aspects of the environment. Since the building facade represents “the public face of a building” having a large impact on the perception of the building itself, from an energetic perspective, a shape shifting envelope acts as an even more optimized buffer or mediator between the interior and the exterior environment.
GSS Chandigarh participants are going through a series of steps from basics designing for modular structure systems that physically respond to stimulus coming from dynamic and unpredictable environments and/or relative design criteria performances. Contrary to standard design processes where shape can be defined in advance, the final geometrical configuration of these flexible structures relies on the integration of programable electronics as the main agent driving the entire formation process.
