Throughout the architecture history, we have been concerning the facade treatment for a much pleasant visual impact to the public.
With the use of material and technology in a given set of boundaries and conditions, the contemporary architecture surfaces are classified into dynamic and static. The building envelope acts like a skin, an intermediate between the interior and the exterior. This skin has evolved over time, with the help of the engineered solutions; the purpose of dynamic facades is to assist in the progress of Sustainable and Responsive architecture. The dynamic facades act as filters between the indoors and the outdoors, facilitating the users providing appropriate shade, sunlight, ventilation and a visual union with the world in motion outside. It is not a new idea, but it is only recently that architects have started utilizing this technology in their structures and designs.
