COST Action TU1403 – Adaptive Facades Network
The main objective of COST Action TU1403 is to harmonise, share and disseminate technological knowledge on adaptive facades at a European level. This shall lead to increased knowledge sharing between European research centres and between these centres and industry, the development of novel concepts, technologies and new combinations of existing technologies for adaptive facades, as well as the development of new knowledge such as effective evaluation tools / design methods for adaptive facades.
A whole series of COST TU1403 publications is now available for free download on this website.
The publications cover various volumes, such as booklets presenting results of the COST TU1403 work groups, the proceedings of the COST TU1403-related conferences, a special edition of the International Journal Facade Design and Engineering with scientific papers by COST TU1403 members, training school booklets on adaptive facades, and many more presentations and pubilications.
Further information can be found under “Dissemination“.
