The paper describes an innovative dynamic façade system, developed in cooperation between two industrial companies, the Danish Building Research Institute and Aalborg University, Den¬mark. The system, named Energy Frames, is a newly developed industrially produced façade system based on the experiences of a number of specially designed solutions for significant individual buildings all over the world. As the demand for energy efficiency of buildings grows throughout Europe, the necessity of developing energy efficient building envelope solutions increases, whilst maintaining acceptable indoor climate conditions. The dynamic façades play an important role in this development as it optimizes the interaction with the external environment in close correlation with the demand from the building and the users.
