Climate Active Bricks

The Climate Active Bricks project was developed as part of a design-build summer school in August 2020th. The project looked into possibilities for improving the local microclimate in urban areas by creating self-shaded building facades with reduced solar exposure. The project aimed at integrating the potentials of computational design, climate simulation and robotic fabrication with the activation of climate-active properties of bricks in building envelopes. A prototype of this concept was produced together with students at 1:1 scale at the Kreativquartier in Munich.
