Farnsworth Wall is an architectural wall module that uses and harvests solar energy for illuminating indoor spaces. This application, using real-time responses to it’s surrounding environment, creates an engaging experience for people on site. The
Farnsworth wall is a modular paneling system built as a Structural Insulated Panel (S.I.P.) in a standard 4’X8′ size.
This module can be cut and applied to virtually any existing or new construction. A layer of solar panels on the exterior harvests and stores radiant energy and an embedded system of low-energy L.E.D. lights on the other side illuminates the interior space.
Farnswoth project is an ongoing research with Studio (n-1) at University of Toronto, John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture. Sponsered by Shell Environmental Fund.
