Sustainable Facade Element

Lima . Peru

The facade as a metamorphic skin with capacity to absorb heat from the sun, moisture and to react to the movement of the wind to produce energy that feeds the building itself.Trying to create a sustainable system, based on the research in the technological field, we propose an object that integrates three elements:- a photovoltaic cell attached to the front, that captures the heat from the sun;- a capillary that reacts like a sponge, absorbing the rain water to produce electricity;- a scute suffering some oscillation caused by the wind, which acts as a wind system that produces energy.
