iris

2013

Iris is a performative building skin designed to provide adaptive shade. It reacts to temperature thanks to the smart material used inside: nilitol muscle wire. Variations in temperature trigger the contraction of the wire, causing the diaphragm to open or close, without sensors or electricity required. Iris is modular and totally autonomous.
