Open Thesis Fabrication 2010: Sunscreen

Program: Open Thesis Fabrication 2010
Research Candidate:  Brian Peters

Project description: Sunscreen is a passive solar display system intended for a wide range of architectural applications. The system can be programmed to relay messages or animations depending on the location of the light source (either the sun or artificial lights). To realize Sunscreen, I collaborated with Kuka, using one of their six-axis robotic arms tofabricate numerous tests. The final large-scale prototype is a solarclock that responds directly to the position of the sun, 365 days of the year here in Barcelona.
