This paper deals with the development of an adaptive building envelope, which by means of modern materials and on the basis of inspirations from technologies in fields of studies other than architecture, adjusts to individual needs of the users of a building, auto-reactively. Command variables to be optimized include user comfort, thermal and acoustic suitability, variable thermal transmission values.
