Architecture: In China: Blue Sky Building Project by KSP Juergen Engel Architekten: “..The development of innovative, highly effective sun protection is another important aspect of this holistic energy engineering. The novel sun and heat protection screen responds highly sensitively and almost without transition to the various natural weather conditions, as well as to the demands placed on it by building services engineering, and to user needs. The thin, film-like material used for the sun protection is given different coatings. Depending on the type and level of translucence, it serves as glare protection, as highly reflective sun protection, or as an insulating skin, which in winter reflects thermal radiation inwards and as such, like Heat Mirror glass, counters heat loss. Invisible from the outside, the sun protection is located in the closed cavity façade. This is a sealed double façade with no outward ventilation, which ensures that dust and harmful substances cannot enter the building unfiltered..” Energy efficiency and sustainability are major concerns for this office tower in China..
