Transparent amorphous silicon PV-facade as part of an integrated concept for the energetic rehabilitation of an office building in Barcelona
Masseck, Torsten
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Departament de Construccions Arquitectòniques I
The present poster shows the case study of an energetic rehabilitation of a five-story staircase and the adjacent zones of an office building in the Barcelona area through an innovative transparent and colored amorphous silicon PV facade. Problems of overheating and cold due to an insufficient ventilation strategy, the lack of sun shading, and an overall deficient thermal behavior were solved as well as an innovative building design was created. An integrated design approach has been realized to explore the possibilities of BIPV within a complex building concept.
