At Amusement Logic we believe that façades have great potential for buildings, as a kind of skin that provides multiple benefits. Their use has not yet become widespread in the market, since a large part of this type of façade is associated with emblematic projects and they are seen as a complex solution, difficult to implement and requiring large financial resources. However, at Amusement Logic we strive to offer much simpler construction ideas for façades, with parts and modules that are relatively easy to manufacture and quick to install.

The new kinetic façade concept that we have developed this month, and which we present here, is the result of this effort to simplify the basic façade module, without losing its aesthetic values and protective function. As can be seen in the video, this new skin of the building is based on a system of vertical slats to which we have applied a gentle torsion. These louvres rotate on their own axis, so that in doing so, they open or close the entrance of light into the interior spaces by degrees.

This solution makes it possible to instantly adapt the façade to the different environmental conditions with which it coexists throughout the day and the year. It also offers architects the opportunity to incorporate design and aesthetics into building façades, while still responding to the practical requirements and strategies of bioclimatic design, so necessary in current architecture.

Ultimately, this duality between light and dark, generated by the rotation of the vertical panels, and the whole spectrum that goes from one option to the other, is also a useful tactical resource for concealing or revealing the building’s interiors, that is, for protecting its privacy. At the same time, it also provides the building a unique external appearance.

Unlike a flat façade, this system of rotating vertical slats, gives the building a pleasing visual accent, an illusion that interrupts the gaze, that flashes, that lightens and darkens the image of the building, from clarity and revelation, to camouflage and concealment.
