by Miryam Muller in Phototropia is part of an ongoing series on the application of smart materials in an architectural context. The show was realized in April 2012 by the Master of Advanced Studies class at the Chair for CAAD and has been supervised by Manuel Kretzer. The structure breathes and deforms thanks to self-made electro-active polymers, screen-printed electroluminescent displays, eco-friendly bioplastics and thin-film dye-sensitized solar cells.
