Architect's Design Flexibility with Zinc- Parametric Facade

Facades and building envelopes define architectural visual identity, character, and language. Building skin design and esthetics convey a character to a site, externally, and internally, is a major parameter for building success. Parametric facades are an integral part of building aesthetics as well as building efficiency and integrated practice of logical and intuitive approach is practised as a process of design and engineering at the intersections of the exterior and interior environment. This is where disciplines converge and art meets science.

Why Parametric Facade

A building skin consists of the vertical facade and horizontal roof components that shield the building from the immediate exterior environment, helping to preserve comfortable interiors and providing the building with structure and stability. Building skins are a critical component in solving sensitive architecture problems as they are a tool through which intelligence can be imparted to an environmental stimulation response to a building system. Thus, its ability to alter energy flows through the building envelope by control, enhancement, attenuation, rejection, or trapping is the main characteristic of the efficient intelligent building skin.

Benefits of façade systems

Redistribution of Solar

The output of a solar insolation radiation study on the existing and new façade system showed a substantial redistribution of solar insolation through the parametric facade. It is possible to adapt the device built-in a parametric workflow to any climatic conditions and to test it against any number of parameters, such as environmental efficiency, structural performance, esthetics, and visibility.

Automation of Building Changes

The parametric facade designs are commonly used in functional architecture. It has greater productivity due to the ability to automate improvements in the building model and working documents. The relationship between architecture, the environment, and the human element is taken into account in the design using digital technology. It also makes it possible to build protruding and dropping planes in the lattice frameworks and stained-glass windows of the façade shell, individually measured for each filling element and its frame with its nonlinear geometry.

Improved Technological Tools

The use of 3d wall panels enables the latest technology systems and materials to be incorporated during the shaping of curvilinear shell facades. Using aluminium and zinc-titanium panels, such types can be realized. There is good durability and plasticity in the sheets from which the panels are made; they can therefore be bent at an angle of 180 degrees. Consequently, it enables complex forms to veneer the facades, decorate arches, and render smooth bends. These materials and technology make it possible to ensure a long service life, a high degree of fire protection, resistance to corrosion and variations in temperature, and compliance with modern finishing material requirements.

Studies are the foundation for the creation of the architectural projects with high-rise buildings, based on the concepts of parametric facade architecture, enabling the architect's innovative concept to be applied in modern technology and materials. 

The implementation of high-rise buildings parametric architecture formulated accounting and implementation aspects would provide an integrated approach to high-rise construction, integrating computer architectural design, digital technology, and modern materials that allow the most incredible innovative solutions to be implemented and at the same time to solve sustainable development.
