A state-of-the-art multimedia installation that is a first-of-its-kind in Singapore– the Funan Kinetic Wall. Spanning 13 metres in height and 9 metres in width, the Kinetic Wall features a total of 1,271 motorised light blades.
In this research by Kamil Sharaidin, kinetic facades are defined as the ability to response and adapt to the changes of the environmental conditions. The strategies mainly focus on the functions and performances of kinetic facades in the context of indoor daylight…
In this study by Rana Ahmed Bahaa El-Dabaa, a parametric script is developed for Kinetic facades to enhance daylight performance. Parametric Daylight simulation was performed through Rhino software using plugins Grasshopper and Diva.
This thesis by Tella Irani Shemirani is focused on investigating the question of: How can a space develop an understanding of its users (through their body gestures) and respond accordingly?
A multidisciplinary team has joined together to implement Tessellate™ technology – a dynamic perforated screen system that regulates light and solar gain – on its first-ever major building.
The research presents a methodology and tool development which delineates a performance-based design integration to address the design, simulation, and proving of an intelligent building skin design and its impact on daylighting performance.
