The structure flutters gently as birds freely fly around the aviary, reverberating like a loom choreographed by birds in flight. Piezoelectric cells connected to the motor?s fluttering quill-like tentacles harness this movement and produce an electrical current, the piezoelectric cells respond to the overall mechanical stress generated by the structure and use this to accumulate electrical charge, which runs through the dichroic-filtered electrochromic glass cladding to modify the façade?s transparency and luminosity. This facade flutter responds directly to the density of bird movement, such that the birds dictate the character of the building within their environment.
