Façades are the primary technological system that regulates the energy performance of a building, matching comfort requirements with users’ needs. To reach this aim, architects focus on kinematics and/or kinetic elements and the different means to include them in building skins. Dr. Viscuso discusses adaptive façades and their capacities to increase the environmental efficiency of contemporary buildings.
Dr. Arch. Salvatore Viscuso is Adjunct Professor and Researcher at the Politecnico di Milano. In 2016, he earned a doctorate in Technology and Design for Environment and Building at Politecnico di Milano, focusing on the design of innovative building components through computational design methods. Currently, Dr. Viscuso is working on nationally funded research for novel remanufacturing models of construction materials.
As BIM manager, he collaborates with leading architecture offices and contractors for the modeling coordination of complex buildings at different project scales. He also participates as speaker in numerous international conferences and workshops (SITdA, IASS, Tensinet, Structural Membranes).
