The design methodology deploys digital technologies that enable designers to experiment further with complex forms through simulations, towards creating dynamic systems that adapt to different topologies, geometries, scales and environmental conditions. Furthermore, this prototypical textile is inspired both in form and function by scales in nature It consists of an adaptable skeleton, informed by the topology of the body, and aperture-components that open and close in order to achieve natural ventilation and therefore cooling towards thermal comfort, improving the environmental impact regarding the energy consumption.
