The extraordinary design combined with smart and advanced technology ensures a balance between user comfort, energy consumption and design. The FC-CAMPUS consists of two staggered building cubes, which are optimally connected in terms of transport technology. Viewed from a distance, the two cubes merge to form a sculptural overall picture that is largely broken through by blue-shimmering glass openings.
This project is an excellent example how the eyrise® team was able to customize the product for the specific needs: both on color, façade technology and shape. We also included a project-specific requirement to add a bird-protection printing pattern. Our R&D team developed a special mixture switching from a fully transparent to a bluish tint. To follow the organic shapes of the glass openings, many different multi-faced shapes were produced: a unique feature from eyrise® in the smart glass industry.

“Intelligent, switchable glass has allowed us to execute an ambitious building design requiring generous glazing with complex geometry that provides unobstructed views unimpaired by conventional sun protection elements.
Eyrise was the only glass solution able to produce glass that exactly corresponded to our design intentions, and its immediate interactive dimmability via controllable liquid crystals has resulted in an elegant facade.”
