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. Check out the construction details at the link below.
