A Whole New World


A responsive system to replace glass windows

A Whole New World is a modular system designed to replace glass windows in high-rise buildings. Glass is bulky and fragile, but also causes low energy efficiency in buildings as light enters and quickly heats up the interior. The designers propose an alternative system in which lightweight hexagonal panels are applied to the exterior, their built-in motors automatically opening or closing the panels depending on the intensity of the light hitting them.
