7) adding a green area that contributes to improve the environmental quality of the zone. In contrast to conventional buildings, where their image deteriorates during the years, this solution provides the building with an always changing aspect with permanent validity. As Browne states: “architecture and vegetation are fused together, turning the latter into a construction material, keeping the building relevant for an undefined time” (Arqa 2011). The color and density of the vines change according to the seasons, regulating solar light that comes into the office spaces.

One example of these type of controls was implemented in the New York Times building (LBNL 2016a). An important variation of this system occurs when there is no processing center, and actions are performed as direct physical or chemical response to the environment. Many smart materials operate under this principle. Examples include independent shape memory alloys, electrochromic windows or dimming elements connected to an array of light sensors, among others. (3) Modular management: as a hybrid between BMS and synchronized controls, entire prefabricated envelope modules are constructed.
