Integrated Thermochromic Striation

Utilising heat transfer simulations to predict thermochromic patterns on 3d-printed façade elements.

Research project by Andreas Körner (2022-2023)

Thermochromic materials are promising for architecture, but their limited UV resistance poses a problem for external applications. Such environmentally responsive smart materials have been studied in various fields ranging from fashion to product design and architecture. Building on previous research by the author, the project aimed to overcome the limitations of thermochromics by exploring heat transfer through solids from external to internal … more
