Adaptive fa[CA]de’ explores the computational possibilities and performative aspects of Cellular Automata. Using an artificial Neural Network it constitutes a ‘living skin’ that responds to the light levels of its environment. Building upon the unique patterns of Cellular Automata, ‘Adaptive fa[CA]de’ provides optimal light intensity to the interior, whilst resulting to an emergent, kinetic behaviour.
Adpative fa[CA]de was exhibited from the 8th of September till the 2nd of October 2009 at Digital Hinterlands Exhibition at Arup’s Phase 2 Gallery on 8, Fitzroy st, as part of London Digital Week. The project was also included in the book 'Passages Through Hinterlands' co-authored by Ruairi Glynn and Sarah Saifei which included featured projects from young architects and recent graduates.
