Description

The use of smart materials in architecture is a dynamic and innovative area merging research, development and use. Smart materials, with their reversible characteristics, respond to stimuli such as light, temperature and electrical field by changing their form, their colour, their viscosity etc. One of the most fascinating developments is the advent of Phase Change Materials. These materials make it possible, for example, to develop self-acting, kinetic facades and wallpaper that changes its colour and pattern based on temperature and light.

This book presents the development of these materials and also describes their use in the contexts of architecture, designand art. It offers a systematic overview with a detailed discussion of properties, technologies, products and projects based on some40 different examples.
