The Facade-Lab is Priedemann’s platform for research & development, creativity, collaboration and innovation. We bring together specialists from different industries such as manufacturing, engineering, architectural and other scientific fields to develop sustainable and cutting edge technologies in the facade sector up to market launch.
Festo was the first project in which we realized our idea of the ACT Facade – as we later called it. ACT stands for Active Cavity Transition, three words that characterize its functionality. We also liked ACT because it’s actually an active building envelope, not just passive sun protection.
Working with sample facades even during the planning phase underlines our technical curiosity as well as our responsibility to ensure feasibility. What will a design actually look like? How technically feasible is it? The Facade Lab provided the right infrastructure to do this. The same applies to the innovation-driven area of prototype development for innovative facade solutions.
