ARCH 372 : ADAPTIVE/RESPONSIVE CONCEPT

This time we have assigned to search an example where the assigned concept is the main design parameter for the building skin. Concepts are lighting, climate-ventilation, structure, energy supply, kinetic and terminally adaptive/responsive. My concept was about adaptive/responsive. On this concept, i choosed Al Bahar Towers, Abu Dhabi, Aedas Architects.

For the project’s sustainable engineering and sensitive cultural and urban approach, the towers were awarded the 2012 Tall Building Innovation Award  by the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

The façade on Al Bahar, computer-controlled to respond to optimal solar and light conditions, has never been achieved on this scale before. In addition, the expression of this outer skin seems to firmly root the building in its cultural context.
