Sungames Pavilion: A responsive skin that contains energy
Extracted a series of formal surface explorations, Sungames is an architectural study for a children’s learning pavilion, acting in response to the daily movements of light and darkness. The study explores a design process approached from the standpoint of the detail as a generator for the configuration of the skin.
The structural fins also contain both the energy source and emanating source for light, dissipating it during the beginning hours of the evening via integrated thin film and LED technology. The intelligent skin is a performative structure and enclosure system integrating existing technology to define a self-sustaining envelope as a model for future design possibilities.
