Abstract
The increasing necessity of sustainability in built environments has reinforced the role of climate responsive design in contemporary practice. Building facades - a boundary layer between indoor and outdoor environments, in turn, have transformed to fulfill adapted roles of high performance integration. The façade is no longer a mere static element that offers a shelter for users. Instead, it is an active, restorative, and generative building system that maximizes the use of natural resources – light, heat, rain, and wind and engages occupants often as a visual stimulator.
