The building façade not only provides the aesthetic signature of a building, but also important functions, such as daylight provision, glare protection, solar gain management and visual contact with the outside, which make the building usable and energy efficient. These functions often oppose each other, so the selection and design of façade systems and their control for a certain building application should depend on those functions that the designer wants to promote to the detriment of the other functions.
