This Interactive facade Cladding System responds intelligently and reliably to the changing outdoor conditions and internal performance needs.

It can be used as a curtain wall in the facade of the buildings and tries to exploit available natural energies for lighting, heating and ventilation, to projecting the diversity inside the building to the outside, and at the same time maintain optimal indoor visual and thermal comfort conditions. The present interactive cladding system is a panel with multilayer striped glass sheets. Each of These Layers is consisted of seven transparent and seven translucent stripes. There is a rectangular cut in each transparent stripe and each layer has translucent stripes with one selective color (Red, Yellow, and Blue). Each of these striped layers is placed on a geared shaft that is connected to a micro servo; by changing the rotational degree of each servo the linear position of each layer will be changed. Each of these striped layers is placed on a geared shaft that is connected to a micro servo; by changing the rotational degree of each servo the linear position of each layer will be changed. There are 4 micro servos in the panel and each of them is connected to one layer.
