PROJECT CHALLENGE Sun Tracking Glass Louvers Acting as Solar ShadingThe goal of this project is to create glass louver system which can be controlled to reduce the solar loads without compromising daylight supply.



CONTROL ANGLE PARAMETERCreate list of adaptive points using XYZ cooridinate

1. Open the mass family and get all the curtain panels and their locations.
2. Create Excel file which has XYZ coordinates of adaptive points.
3. Clean the Excel data manually using Excel Find and Replace function to become data only  Get each panel direction1. Read panel location data from Excel file and create a list. 2. Create panel objects as Revit adaptive components according to the list.




3. Create panel surface geometry by connecting all points. 4. Find center point of each panel and get a vector at the point. 5. If Vector Y is positive (when panel is facing North), reverse a vector.

PROJECT BUILDINGThe National Art Center (Tokyo, Japan)


The National Art Center, Tokyo (NACT) is the national government's fifth art institution to be organized under the umbrella of the Independent Administrative Institution National Museum of Art. The NACT is one of the largest museum in Japan and has 14000 square meters of exhibitions space. The museum is characterized by a long facade covered with large glass curtain wall with exterior glass louvers to block direct light and ultraviolet rays.

MODELINGCurved facade wall Curved facade wall is based on plan drawings since the wall includes many different curves and complicated.

Each line is created with Point Element tool and Spline Through Point tool. With theses reference lines, conceptual mass model can be created by using …
