HOMEOSTATIC 3D ENVELOPE ARCHITECTURE TO CREATE AN ADAPTIVE SMART AND SENSITIVE SKIN ON BUILDING FAÇADES
Development of a smart building envelope acting as a Sensitive Skin. The starting point is based on 3 components (3P): hydrogel/piezoelectric polymer shell (skin), support structure of the wrapping material (folds) and 3D sensor meshing system (pores). The operation of the set is initiated by the signals captured in the pore, consisting of sensors that are self-powered by latent energies in the building (piezoelectric, electrostatic, electro-solar, wind power and/or electromagnetic), which will be developed to be customisable for the building, so that it is sustainable and according to the SKIN to be executed.
- Combination of new multi-polymeric materials for façades, such as PBLG (poly(benzyl) glutamate). These are materials that transform mechanical energy into electrical energy.
- Engineering approach to study Operational Architectural control systems for efficiency of the natural energies that surround us and distributed intelligence.
- The new cognitive networks in micro-sensor clouds (CWSNs). Along with new tools for planning and integrating systems in digital spaces (Smart buildings).
