By the year 2050 2/3 of our population will live in urban areas. Where shall the materials come for our growing cities when resources on our planet are finite? The Circular Economy decouples economic growth from the use of resources by preserving and regenerating natural resources, minimizing waste and negative externalities. Facades are becoming adaptive systems, that enable the extension, re-purposing and disassembly of buildings. They are made of rapidly renewable materials with shorter lifecycles or are modular, configurable and productive systems that are part of the urban metabolism.

For many years the design of facades has been developed with architecture as the driving force. This has meant that aesthetics, relation to local tradition and location in the landscape have been the driving factors in how we designed our facades. The appearance of the facade is in many cases based on how it appears visually. But, is this the right way to approach a design challenge?
In recent years, the energy requirements to our buildings and thus also to our facades have increased. These new requirements have a big influence on how we design facades and which materials we can use. Increased requirements for insulation and minimizing the energy consumption for cooling have a major influence on the amount of glass, the type of glass, and sun shading. This changes the conditions for the architecture and the perception of our buildings outside as well as inside. The modern facade should reflect the changes in our society and the demands to our buildings. We need to incorporate the energy requirements into our design from the start in order to maintain the aesthetic and architectural intent.
This presentation reviews three different case studies from the portfolio of Henning Larsen illustrating and highlighting these issues.

Alike flora and fauna buildings need to respond dynamically to the dynamic changes in their environment. Adaptive building systems are becoming increasingly relevant in the context of an efficient use of energy. As is shown by the simple fact that the building sector at present accounts for a substantial, 44-percent share of the world’s consumption of primary energy. The term “adaptive” addresses the ability of a high performing building envelope to respond to changing exterior situation in order to control the energy flows and provide maximum of user comfort.

For decades, modern timber construction with CAD/CAM has been a pioneer in the digitalisation of construction. Systematic approaches with digital planning in BIM, production with robots and lean processes in the implementation enable very short construction times. For large projects, timber construction is (almost) always combined with steel or concrete, making solutions necessary that require interdisciplinary thinking and work. The key to short construction times and economic efficiency lies in finding simple solutions that should be incorporated from the beginning of the planning process.

The unlimited possibilities offered by these fascinating and sustainable precious wood materials for hotel- and object buildings will be displayed. Whether classically elegant or rustic types of wood, textured surfaces or with a completely individual digital imprint. Also for fire protection panels or acoustic elements we can show numerous solutions that meet the highest demands in terms of design and aesthetics.Noble wood materials - for more nature in the room.
