This project unravels the effects of the variations in atmospheric conditions on the building envelope as a ‘creative potential’ for architectural intervention through a series of prototypes. The potential of textile-based materials as a hybrid art and architectural medium opens to debate the emerging concepts of ‘responsive architecture’ that leads to lessening the negative impact of buildings on the local climate.
