Team proposes a pleated, high performance façade system that incorporates light filtration and program performance in order to create a dynamic retail experience that connects the store interior to its external context. Typical and structural modules connect to create a self-supporting facade system with minimal seams and virtually indistinguishable external and internal faces.

Light : Images of sky and trees are expressed through perforations as natural light is controlled by the differed range of perforation on the panels.

Deployment : 24 module types are engineered to maximize manufacture efficiency and minimize material waste. These 24 types create a huge array of possibilities in assembly and on-site deployment. 

Structure : In order to create the most flexible system, we created two major structural components to our system.

1. external connection to existing curtain wall.

2. module as self-supporting beam.
