Moving wall elements
Buitink Technology developed, as follow up of the design
of Peter Marino Architect, a transparent and moving
wall.Target of this development was to create a "living" and
"breathing" wall with a variable transparency. All computer
controlled and adjusted.
Buitink Technology designed a wall with following
- Wall with holes having in front ETFE air cushions inserted,
like convex windows.
- At the back of the cushions an inflatable construction
that can be opened or partially closed such as to control the
entering light from outside.
Movable by inflatable tubes
Opening and closing the holes in the wall is realized by air
inflatable tubes. Each "window" can be individually controlled and
thus be opened or closed individually.
A highly comfortable inner space is created, well insulated with
perfect controlled lighting from outside. The amount of outside
light entering depends on the pressure control inside the
