Timo Carl, professor of digital design and construction at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, compiles in “Deep Skin Architecture: Design Potentials of Multi-Layered Architectural Boundaries” different facade typologies as alternatives to curtain walls.
Carl investigates how the relationship between buildings and the surrounding environment can be increased and improved. In reviewing Le Corbusier’s brise-soleil, the professor argues that a new architectural interpretation appears in modern projects, which is no longer based on classical rules of composition, but on dynamic relationships with environmental forces and conscious energy efficiency.
