PERFORMANCE: weather adaptability
This micro structure has the ability to adapt to current weather conditions. During dry and sunny conditions, it is open and air can ventilate through. If it comes in contact with humidity, e.g. rain, the structure closes and forms a water-tight layer, which opens again when dried by the sun. In its open state, the structure is ventilated again and residual humidity is dried off. Since the structure is closed during rain periods, the cumulated dirt is washed off and the structure is cleaned.
