The unique feature of adaptive facades is their capability to adapt physical properties (i.e. thermooptical, structural, etc.) in a reversible way as a response to and/or to adjust to transient boundary conditions (either external, such as climate, or internal, such as occupants’ requirements), in order to respond to changing priorities (i.e. minimizing the building energy use, maximizing the use of natural light, etc.).
