Hi Reviters!

I'm working on a project where I want a layered facade structure composed of one layer of sliding glass panels and two layers of fabric curtains on the interior side. (Please see attached reference image from a Lacaton & Vassal project with a similar solution).

As both the sliding glass panels and fabric curtains would be user operated, ideally I'd like to create renderings where different parts of the facade are in different states of "openess", like glass + fabric layer slided shut / glass shut, fabric layer slided open / all layers slided open etc.

Would be great with some tips on what the most effective (least time and computing power needed), realistic and flexible way to create such a facade system would be. I'm using Revit 2014.

Thanks in advance and a happy new year!

 

Erik

One of my previous projects had curtain walling with a ceramic artistic frit needing to be shown on the internal face of the external glass panel.

To do this I used normal curtain walling in front showing the various typical panels side by side eg solid spandrel panels, opaque glass panels, clear glass panels and then across the whole glass facade I placed an inplace extruded family showing the artistic image as a silhouette.

It rendered quite well.

Alternatively you could just do the curtain walls as they need to be and then create a family showing the curtains fabric and place them internally against the back of the glass.

Hi Beaucoupnice,

Thanks for your reply. I've created a Panel family with all three layers and separate value parameters for how much each layer is slid open. But I now I'll also make separate families for each layer and add them back-to-back in the model (as you also suggested) for greater flexibility.

Best,

 

Erik
