KEYWORDS: modular, phase-change material
A three-layer element consisting of PCM, insulation and a light-absorbing surface is arranged in a modular system that changes its direction according to the temperature. During the day, the PCM is oriented toward the sun in order to absorb energy. During the night, the module rotates 180° so that the PCM faces the interior space where it releases its energy to warm the room.
