Smart facde / Energy-efficient buildings

Smart facde

Nowadays, many glass facade buildings in cities are reflected by the sun, affecting many passers-by and causes traffic accidents. Once the building is exposed to sunlight, SMART FACADE will absorb the sunlight to transform into energy for the internal building to achieves energy-saving effects. When the smart facade is not needed, the panels can be retracted to make the building with lattice effects. On a cloudy or foggy day, turn the panel to the other side that combined with the bamboo and the metal plate, which can condense the fog to water and through the pipeline into the building, assist the daily use of water sources.
