HydroSKIN: Research on Climate-adaptive Building Skins

HydroSKIN represents a revolutionary façade element for rainwater retention and evaporative cooling. The lightweight textile building skin collects the wind-driven rainwater hitting the façade, and releases water in heat periods to cool the interior and exterior environment by evaporation. The aim is a drastic reduction of urban inundation and heat risks by relieving the sewage infrastructure and providing natural microclimate regulation. Due to its lightweight system design, HydroSKIN is universally applicable on both, new and existing buildings.
