PowerSKIN Conference 2022

On Thursday, December 8, 2022, the PowerSKIN conference will be held as a hybrid event at RWTH Aachen University. The core topic is the building envelope’s future contribution to achieving a climate-neutral building stock.

In his presentation: “Active, passive and cyber-physical adaptive façade strategies: a comparative analysis based on case studies”, Jens Böke will give insights into both research projects ADAPTEX and PRÄKLIMA, which serve as case studies on passive and active adaptive façade strategies.
We are looking forward to the event and an exciting discussion.

News | October 2022, Oman

Retrospective of the realization of an ADAPTEX KLIMA+ test facade at the Eco House of the German University of Technology in Oman

The ADAPTEX research project explores adaptive textile sunshade elements, able to open and close independently in response to temperature changes. Two different design concepts have been developed: ADAPTEX Wave is based on the deformation of textile strips, while the second approach, ADAPTEX Mesh, superimposes two textile layers to open or close the structure. In both approaches, the opening mechanism is enabled by the integration of smart materials, in particular, shape memory alloys (SMA).

Having already demonstrated the operating principle of ADAPTEX wave and mesh prototypes under laboratory conditions, the developments were further investigated in real-world applications. Muscat in Oman, with its particularly high temperatures, offers an ideal climate to test the behaviour under extreme conditions. Therefore, in August 2022, the Priedemann R&D team visited the German University of Technology (GUTech) in Muscat together with representatives of Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin (KHB) and Carl Stahl ARC GmbH to install the solar shading system at the university’s ECO House. A decentralized sensor network is part of this implementation and sends data via the cloud as part of long-term monitoring, providing information about the behaviour of the system during operation.

Many thanks to the GUTech, for the opportunity to realize this project and for the great cooperation during the installation. Other project partners are Verseidag-Indutex GmbH and i-Mesh | Customizable Textile for Architecture & Design, whom we also thank very much for their support and cooperation in the ADPATEX KLIMA+ research project. The project is funded by BMBF Zwanzig20 within the innovation network smarthoch3.

We can't wait to realize the ADAPTEX research project as a test façade at GUtech's EcoHouse in Muscat, Oman!

In ADAPTEX research project, the Priedemann R&D team is developing together with Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin (KHB) and different industrial Partners like Carl Stahl ARC GmbH, Verseidag INDUTEX GmbH and I-Mesh an adaptive solar shading solution consisting of textile-integrated Shape Memory Alloys (SMA).

After the development and optimization of the functional principle as well as extensive tests on material behavior under laboratory conditions, both concepts ADAPTEX WAVE and MESH are now applied under actual climatic conditions of Oman.

The prototypes have already started their journey to Oman.

In August 2022, we will follow ourselves to accompany the assembly and installation of the test façade. We thank the GUTech university for the opportunity of this implementation and look forward to an exciting cooperation with many new impulses and impressions.

The Priedemann competition entry “EVOCON – Towards a diverging evolution in façade construction” won the METALS IN CONSTRUCTION MAGAZINE DESIGN CHALLENGE 2022!

The competition called for innovative curtain wall solutions that are able to respond dynamically to a wide range of environmental conditions. Based on the premise that a key to sustainable solutions lies in the modularity and circularity of building envelopes, EVOCON addresses this challenge by breaking down the façade structure into its functional layers according to the lifespans of its components. This is allowing for both direct responses and longer-term reconfigurations of the façade system.

The concept was developed by Priedemann Facade Experts: Puttakhun Vongsingha, Natchai Suwannapruk, Avinash Nair, Jens Böke, Paul-Rouven Denz and Lars Anders.

We share the first price with a second winning contribution called GROW and say congrats to the team for the also very exciting entry.

Many thanks to the competition jury for their appreciation and the professional discussion on our concept: Holger Schulze-Ehring (Büro Ehring), Jessica Young (Heintges Consulting Architects & Engineers), Berardo Matalucci (SHoP), Mic Patterson, PhD, LEED AP+ (Facade Tectonics Institute)
