According to Moritz Mungenast, he is Associate Professor of Architectural Design and Building Envelope, “Custom building envelopes straight from the printer and not only is the facade element very stable, it’s also translucent and multi-functional. For example, cells inside the element provide stability while at the same time creating air-filled cavities for optimum insulation. Waves in the material create shadows. Thin embedded tubes let air circulate from one side of the element to the other, ensuring the best possible ventilation. And the micro-structured surface provides for perfect acoustics. All these functions are scalable and can be adapted to accommodate individual requirements at no extra cost”.
