Sensitive Apertures

November 8, 2011

Cellular ceramic light apertures

Sensitive Apertures is a modular slip-cast ceramic building skin designed to admit a small quantity of light through a refractive glass aperture. This opening redirects sunlight onto the inside surface of the cell, projecting an even luminous glow to the interior space. The 1% open apertures admit levels of light desired for interior circulation zones as well as insulate a building from solar heat gain and loss.
