Recharging the Façade

Recharging the Façade

This project investigates the design and development of a new, power generating building construction assembly that ambitiously and radically challenges existing methods of installing solar power technologies.

Rather than designing costly and foreign installation processes, an innovative design method has been created that affordably allows any building, in remote or urban environments, to be powered by their walls.
