This idea to add a layer of foam to the window or façade element evolved from searching for ways to direct incident light. By using thinner or thicker layers, foam can transmit more or less light. At a close distance, the façade appears almost transparent; with greater distance the visible number of bubbles in the foam increases, thereby decreasing the transparency. The façade appears translucent. Energy input decreases at the same rate as the transparency is reduced.
