Acclimate: Intelligent Canopy System for Hot Climates

Acclimate is a kinetic pavilion, designed to enhance urban public spaces in hot climate regions. Downtown Bahamas, for instance, has outdoor spaces that are often inhabited, as the problem of dealing with extreme tropical heat is intensified with climate change. The design proposes an intelligent canopy system that rapidly adapts to accommodate a variety of programs. The white modular shading devices are comprised of Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) linear actuators and pinion-rack system. Together, these components create different configurations of the canopy that react to the changing sun angles. The ability to control the shade casted on ground provides freedom to enjoy warmth on pleasant days.


The interactive features of Acclimate aim to attract the locals and tourists to further use the parks, as well as fulfilling the needs of the users beyond the capabilities of static shading devices.
