Concept - Four >> Kinetic Media Facade


The development of media facade technologies that integrate seamlessly with architecture in conception, installation and lifetime is still in its infancy. While there are now many examples of ambitious projects, significant issues of resolution, brightness, maintenance expenditure and invasiveness of display systems with the building spaces located behind them, still remain. In this last respect, especially, difficulties arise because most media facades are planned after the architectural concepts – and often much of the construction itself – have been completed. In contrast, considers display systems to be an integral part of architecture and the construction of such display systems to require long-life building components and materials in the same way as glazing and HVAC installations. We are developing systems solutions, which will be available to architects in the early stages of planning in order to address these problems directly, leading to media facade implementations that are fully integrated with the design and technical realisation of the building.
