The Austrian architect Giselbrecht shows us how among the current trends in the construction industry, specifically in contemporary architecture, adaptive facades are a phenomenon that is here to stay. Take a look at this amazing project!
Adaptive facades, also known as dynamic facades, are architectural structures which allow a building to receive sunlight at a desired time. They are capable of adapting their components to the changes of weather conditions.
New architectural trends: Adaptive facades
New architectural trends offer dynamic designs such as facades, and also begun to use special materials, extending the durability of the product.
The most commonly used materials in the creation of these dynamic facades range from composite resin plates to stone cladding or photovoltaic glass. Some of the main properties of these materials include: moisture resistance, fire resistance, sustainability, energy sufficiency, among others.
The main benefit of using dynamic facades is the fact that they can be programmed through virtual apps to fold or unfold according to the selected time of the day.
Dynamic facades improve energy efficiency and building’s economy
Usually, many of the building design innovations are aimed at creating modern and extreme decorations, however dynamic facades offer much more than this; they also offer a lot of functional advantages.
One of the main advantages is the ability to use sunlight in order to regulate internal temperatures and reduce electricity consumption.
Many of these facades feature solar panels in their architecture, generating energy that can be used not only to replace electrical light, but also to reduce energy consumption of devices such as air conditioning or heating.
Dynamic facades as ecological facades
Did you ever imagine that building facades could be green? Taking care of the planet is everyone’s job, which is why I find it amazing that this architectural innovation allows us to belong to that percentage of the population that is doing everything possible to restore the planet.
Adaptive facades are considered ecological because they allow a better use of natural resources such as sunlight.
Not only are they very advanced in technology and can be programmed to activate automatically, but they can also be integrated into the air conditioning and lighting systems, so that they can be activated depending on the season or time of the day.
In addition, they take advantage of natural light as much as possible to increase the outside view of the outside, which adds a special touch to the building if it is located in a place with a landscape which is worth admiring.

The future of the construction industry as a generator of sustainability
Being a futuristic speaker, it is important to highlight in my keynotes how, in the future, the construction industry will generate sustainability and how this will be reflected in contemporary architecture.
What survives is what adapts to change. Are you ready to adapt to the future?
