ThinkingSkins describes the exploration of adaptive building envelopes on the basis of negotiated information. This includes the conceptual analysis of current technical developments towards a total construction system. The starting point of this research is the complex requirements of a façade. Strategies of parametric designing are applied to the negotiation process of responsive reactions. The goal of «ThinkingSkins» is to improve the performance of building envelopes by continuous, intelligent adaptations in accordance with their requirements.
