Flare facade, is a living outer skin for any building. Composed of individual 3-D triangulars, these things can individually controlled via a computer to create some really amazing animation effects without the use of LEDs and electricity. (Pic and Video after the jump)
Perhaps, if they put a solar cell on each of these blocks, you will get a super-controllable sustainable energy for the building. Kill 2 stones with 1 bird. (haha…)
Here’s a video of it in action:
The FLARE system consists of a number of tiltable metal flake bodies supplemented by individually controllable pneumatic cylinders.
Due to the developed pattern, an infinite array of flakes can be mounted on any building or wall surface in a modular system of multiplied FLARE units.
