This paper presents a mechanical study on the use of tensegrity lattices for the design of energy efficient sunscreens inspired by the dynamic solar fa\c{c}ades of the Al Bahar Towers in Abu Dhabi. The analyzed screens tassellate origami modules formed by 12-bar and 3-string tensegrity systems. The actuation of each module is controlled through the stretching of the perimeter strings, which form macro-triangles moving parallel to the building, while all the bars and the fabric mesh infills form… CONTINUE READING
