    Yes but does it close up at night

  • chasemanwew says:

    The buildings move like breathing to get heat up or cool down. Just like a
    male’s scrotum.

  • Sculpture Junkie says:

    Just imagine: maybe a thousand years from now, all our buildings will have
    incredible technology that allows them to adapt to environmental conditions
    using almost no energy.

    Haben Bimetalle in der Architektur eine große Zukunft, etwa für
    Beschattungssysteme, die keine Energieversorgung brauchen?

    I can’t imagine trying to clean one of these projects. Unless sealed from
    the elements, it will need cleaning. Great ideas. Thank you.

  • jesse vinaykanth says:

    Well, this is a very interesting project, but I have few questions.
    Firstly, since these are thermal bi-metals which are sensitive and are good
    conductors of heat, so how effective are these metals films are in thermal
    insulation. For instance, the situation where the temperature is not hot as
    the metal sheet tends to curl, and what would the temperature difference
    from being under this installation to outside the surface.
    Having being said that these metals do radiate heat so how comfortable is
    it staying under this breathing/shading device or in a enclosure made out
    of this materials?
