    The FLARE system is a modular dynamic display for building facades that acts like a "living skin" to allow the building to "communicate" with its environment. The surface, controlled by a computer, consists of a series of tiltable metal flakes and controllable pneumatic cylinders that act as pixels based on their tilt in relation to the sun. Check out the construction details at the link below.

    And the Flare-facade homepage refers to it as
    a modular system to create a dynamic hull for facades or any building or wall surface. Acting like a living skin, it allows a building to express, communicate and interact with its environment.
    FLARE turns the building facade into a penetrable kinetic membrane, breaking with all conventions of the building surface as a static skin.
