For an office building located in Utrecht, the Dutch architecture firm Cepezed and Ned Kahn artist devised a facade turning in the wind.

This facade is made of a stainless steel mesh of 300 m² on which small transparent plastic discs are fixed. When the wind picks up, the discs quiver and this second skin vibrates, capturing the sunlight and reflecting the sky in a changing way. Like pixels, these light points draw as many patterns on an endlessly recomposed screen facade.
