The envelope of an environmentally and climate friendly building must be adaptable to accommodate the comfort needs of the individual user, and maximise energy performance and productivity according to the season of the year and time of day. The Forum gave a broad overview of the latest developments of office façades, pointing towards solutions for the future. The speakers were pioneers of multi-functional and intelligent variable façades featuring interactive communication systems, multi-functional glass skins, new materials, intelligent control systems, and integrated systems of photovoltaic solar energy.
