Responsive Surface USC_517_SHLin_3-4.jpg A responsive surface. It is responsive to the combination of the distance to a variable point and a mathematical function.
Responsive Panel USC_517_SHLin_3-5.jpg A responsive panel. Its opening is responsive to the distance to a variable point. Tips: The diagram is helpful for generating the panel geometryUSC_517_SHLin_3-5_Panel.jpg
Sun System USC_517_SHLin_3-6_SolarPanel_1.jpgUSC_517_SHLin_3-6_SolarPanel_2.jpg Use the given solar system to design the responsive panel. The shading extrusion will change according to and rad channel value. Originally, the distance logic was intended to be applied. However, the method can't calculate the shading impact.
Annual Solar Analysis USC_517_SHLin_3-7_AnnualSolarAnalysis.jpg Use the given annual solar analysis file to analyze the radiance of my tower geometry. The next step can be to design responsive shading for the facade.
