Innovative & movable facade forms
Students regularly visit Buitink
Technology with ideas they want to check on feasability. We not
only provide information but, depending on the project, we also
give them the opportunity to realize prototypes or test products
like the moving facade concept or the double skin facade
Below you can find a number of
proposals for the double skin facade concepts that were realized by
students from the Technical University Eindhoven. In the context of
the Sobra project initiated at the university and in cooperation
with Buitink, the students were supervised and could experiment
with different materials to develop their new ideas.
