“Buildings communicate: through their architecture and – as part of the architectonic concept – via their facades. In an age defined by high-tech, architects also are increasingly making use of the latest communications technology in order to present their buildings on the public stage. Whereas a glass facade merely makes a building more transparent, the media facade goes a step further. The dynamic surfaces – presentation areas for designs, animations or film sequences – turn the exterior shell of a building into a communication medium, an intermediary between structure and outdoor space.”
