Building Envelope BCN



With the Building Envelope Barcelona project, we aimed to design a new facade for an existing building. The final morphology of the facade is shaped by sun exposure data. Analysis of sun exposure provided the values of different absorption levels on the facade. By merging environmental data with bio-mimicry we generated the surface in a hexagonal grid form. The surface we created out of cells, collected light through solar panels, and provided heating for the building.
