Perforated steel shutters on investigation center [251]

The building proposes an inherent image to its functionality and therefore is manifested by a wrapping that covers the whole facade. 

These three bio-types are taken as reference for similar adaptive  systems:The camel as a paradigm of functional section.The polar bear as an example of multifunctional skin.The leaf  as integration between structural resolution and flexibility. 

The retractable perforated metal sheet solution protects the interior without forgetting the outside views, thanks to its good ratio between the size of the hole and its density.
