A digital, parametric design process was needed to achieve this. Specially developed software calculates the optimal façade to produce the best light yield and, in so doing, the highest electricity yield for each and every location, compass direction and building. This obviously means that every façade has to be different; no location, no building shell can be the same as the next.
But, they do have one thing in common: they are all made of ALUCOBOND®, folded into lightweight but very strong factory-assembled tray panels. Folding technology coupled with intelligent design help to minimise any self shading between the modules and maximise the energy yield.
