FLARE Façade

is a modular system to create a dynamic hull for facades or any building or wall surface. Acting like a living skin, it allows a building to express, communicate and interact with its environment. Say goodbye to driving with sun in the eyes caused by shiny buildings!The FLARE system consists of a number of tiltable metal flake bodies supplemented by individually computer controllable pneumatic cylinders. Each metal flake reflects either bright sky or sunlight when in vertical standby position. When a flake is tilted downwards, its face is shaded from the sky light and appears as a ‘dark pixel’. By reflecting ambient or direct sunlight, the individual flakes act like pixels formed by natural light. This idea seems like a natural combination for solar powered technology that could follow sun light around for a power source.
