Al Bahar Towers, Abu Dhabi. Aedas, Arup (2012). http://inhabitat.com/exclusive-photos-worlds-largest-computerized-facade-cools-aedas-al-bahr-towers/ http://www.archdaily.com/270592/al-bahar-towers-responsive-facade-aedas/
Bent by Chris Kabel with Abbink X de Haas. A facade of perforated hexagons that catches the light like a hanging sheet of fabric, If they are bent upwards they reflect the light and bending downwards they become darker pixels.
This sculptural facade also doubles as an air-cleaning cladding. The tiles are produced by Elegant Embellishments (called the Prosolve 370e). They are lightweight, thermoformed plastic tiles coated in powdered, photocatalytic titanium dioxide (TiO2) which scrubs pollution from the air. #facade #material #pollution
