Description

Authors Russell Fortmeyer and Charles Linn trace the historical development of active facades in modern architecture, and reveal how contemporary architects and consultants design and test these systems. A shift in the architecture industry's focus in the last 20 years toward ecological concerns, long-term value, and user comfort has coincided with significant new developments in digital controls, actuators, shading typologies, building physics simulation capability, and material performance.
