Color Changing

WHAT IS IT?
Color changing with temperature

FORCE TYPOLOGY
Temperature, Heat

MATERIALS
Plastic Thermochromic paint

The color of a leaf changes over the seasons because of variations in the length of daylight and weather. In autumn the green color disappears, and the yellow to orange colors become visible.

Could a skin of a building as well change into different shades according to temperature, light, and water?

Inspired by this natural phenomena, we researched into pigments sensitive to temperature variations, that allow heat absorption and reflection by changing their shade when subjected to heat or cold.
