The use of tensegrity structures for the construction of active solar façades of Energy Efficient Buildings (EEBs) has been investigated in recent studies. 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 of a blinking sail. The use of the proposed façade system as a dynamic sun-screen 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. Finally, some considerations are presented on adaptive envelope systems and their direct implementation on the building façade.
