Recent studies have investigated the use of tensegrity structures for the construction of active solar façades of Energy Efficient Buildings (EEBs). The present work moves along such lines by proposing a methodology that supports the development of the design and construction process of new façade components with tensegrity architecture. The activation motion of the examined tensegrity façade system mimics the dynamics a blinking sail. The use of the proposed façade system as a dynamic sun-screen or a wind-energy harvesting device is presented, with the aim of illustrating the application of tensegrity architectures to the design of next-generation dynamic solar façades of EEBs.

Abstract

Recent studies have investigated the use of tensegrity structures for the construction of active solar façades of Energy Efficient Buildings (EEBs). The present work moves along such lines by proposing a methodology that supports the development of the design and construction process of new façade components with tensegrity architecture. The activation motion of the examined tensegrity façade system mimics the dynamics a blinking sail. The use of the proposed façade system as a dynamic sun-screen or a wind-energy harvesting device is presented, with the aim of illustrating the application of tensegrity architectures to the design of next-generation dynamic solar façades of EEBs.
