Drilled and corrugated folding-sliding panels by H&dM [587]

Herzog & de Meuron studio is carefully exploring the possibilities of perforated sheet filters; (see also [576] by the same architects).The whole façade of this building in Munich is covered with a layer of horizontal folding sliding metal panels. The manipulation of these leaves can be done from the inside through a sophisticated mechanism, so as a pantograph.
