Pieles arquitectónicas dinámicas

“La arquitectura contemporánea sustituye la idea de fachada por la de piel: capa exterior mediadora entre el edificio y su entorno. No un alzado neutro sino una membrana activa, informada, comunicada y comunicativa. Más que meros agujeros, pieles técnicas interactivas. Pieles colonizadas por elementos   funcionales capaces de alojar instalaciones y servicios, capaces de captar y transmitir energías. Pero también capaces de soportar otras capas incorporadas: solapadas más que adheridas”.

M. Gausa, <Piel>, en Diccionario Metapolis de Arquitectura Avanzada.

Contemporary architecture replaces the concept facade by skin: outer layer mediating between the building and its surroundings; active, in- formed, connected and communicative membrane. Our training and practice in architecture, still working for the rigor and stability of modular geomerías on determinants of a unique spatial and morphological situation passive. In the teaching of architecture in Latin America there are no exercises that incorporate a learning design to create flexible dynamic geometries as possible structures for sensitive skin. The research aims to explore the possibilities and systematize the dynamic folding of planar surfaces using geometric simulation programs (freeform origami, Grasshopper); building scale prototypes (rapid prototyping and arduino microcontroller) and subsequent verification of energy analysis program.
