Architecture: In China: Dalian Museum by 10 Design: “.. the zinc rainscreen facade is surfaced with a photocatalytic nano-coating of titanic dioxide to neutralize any air pollution and remove dirt. at night, UV lights powered by photovoltaic cells maintain the cleansing reaction which takes place while incorporating the imagery of a blooming flower, an important symbol to dalian. an inner layer of aluminum lined with a polymer acts as an insulation, adding 10-20 percent to the material’s R-values with marine and fungal resistance. the simple paint-like layers dramatically increase performance for minimal costs, while general orientation of entrances and internal spaces minimize western facing elevations. entries are placed to reduce the effects of northern winds to encourage passive solar techniques…”  Environmentally conscious?..
