Contemporary approaches to the topic of the responsiveness of architectural components tend to simplify the moving parts as much as possible, avoiding the use of complex mechanisms. KREO is a component for lightweight responsive envelopes made with a composite material with elastic matrix and a textile reinforcement. The composite is pre-folded and it is possible to fold and unfold it without hinges through its elastic mechanism. The component is also capable of producing energy for its handling system through an integrated high efficiency photovoltaic system. Furthermore, its pre-folded geometry ensures its strength. This research involves the construction of a prototype of this energy self-sufficient kinetic component and the definition of its production process.

Abstract

Contemporary approaches to the topic of the responsiveness of architectural components tend to simplify the moving parts as much as possible, avoiding the use of complex mechanisms. KREO is a component for lightweight responsive envelopes made with a composite material with elastic matrix and a textile reinforcement. The composite is pre-folded and it is possible to fold and unfold it without hinges through its elastic mechanism. The component is also capable of producing energy for its handling system through an integrated high efficiency photovoltaic system. Furthermore, its pre-folded geometry ensures its strength. This research involves the construction of a prototype of this energy self-sufficient kinetic component and the definition of its production process.
