"The current 'Green Race' going on in architecture today leaves many buildings from older generations struggling to remain relevant in a time where energy efficiency is king. Specifically, the International Style of Architecture from the 1950s through the 1970s. This thesis will explore the results of creating responsive shading systems to protect the building, create an identity from which the current style denies, and ultimately extend the life of said building."
