Living skin breathes life into building facades

The FLARE system is a modular dynamic display for building facades that acts like a “living skin” to allow the building to “communicate” with its environment. The surface, controlled by a computer, consists of a series of tiltable metal flakes and controllable pneumatic cylinders that act as pixels based on their tilt in relation to the sun.
