/// Heat Balloons
IMAGINED BY: Maksym Iurovnikov and Prof. Daniel Dendra / DIA
KEYWORDS: energy, sunshading, façade, energy harvesting
This concept is based on the principle of heat absorbing balloons. Imagine a layer of black balloons covering the whole surface of a building’s façade that is able to harvest the sun’s energy. The balloons can be filled with water or air to be used for the rooms next to the façade. By regulating the size of the balloons by their filling amount you are also able to control the amount of solar energy that penetrates the façade area.
