|Thai Traditional Filtering ||Glass Louvers on UPC building |
Theme: Filters that protect the exceeding solar radiation but ease the visual relation with the street.
The Northern Italian traditional windows, with their two hinged louvered shutters and pivoting guides are a clear example of solar protection and full vision from the interior to the street. Also suggesting can be the roll-up blinds hanging over the balcony that in narrow streets allow lateral vision to the street extension while protecting ones privacy. Even roller shutters with guides projecting to the exterior are worthy to reconsider. We are searching for case studies that combine both objectives in a beautiful, useful and ingenious way.
Format: All participants will submit at filt3rs.net a case study of an existing window that, at their consideration, better resolves the relations required. The format will be a filt3rs CASE, under the participate menu. It must contain several exterior and interior photographs and a detailed section or sketch of the building.
Criteria: The jury will take into account, in this order:
- The interest of the presented solution.
- The contemporaneity of the case.
- The contemporary use of traditional solutions.
- The quality of the presented material.
Jury: Jose Maria Ferreira (Jofebar), Eduard Bru, Ignacio Paricio, Cristina Pardal
