FLUID WALLS

Fluid Walls consists of two glass panels with two different fluids trapped between them. One fluid that is totally transparent and one that is colored and opaque. Because the fluids slightly deviate in density they don't mix.

 

When they're not influenced by any form of heat they lay on top of each other providing you with a clear view through the glass. However, when the sun hits the glass, the fluids will get warmer and want to move upwards.

 

Because the fluids are captured in a very narrow transparent space you are able to see this process very clearly.

 

This mysterious occurrence provides slowly transforming shadows inside a room when it’s being enlightened by the sun outside.

Fluid Walls is an element in architecture that plays with the amount of transparency between inside and outside.

 

The walls will grow and bloom ones the sun starts to shine. During the day these colored clouds will float alongside the facades of a building providing shades where needed.
