Static Metal Becomes ‘Digitally-Readable’

A building at the Ontario College of Art and Design University, in Canada, is to be partly-sheathed in an interactive façade. Passers-by will be able to ‘read’ information storied in the façade by photographing it with a mobile device, using a specific app. The façade will be made of aluminium panels mounted on a metal sub-frame, cut using water jets.
