dc.description.abstract Responsive skins are often considered complex hi-tech systems. The results of previous researches led the authors to reflect on the actual implications of kinetic responsive skins having a high impact from the visual point of view but presenting higher issues of durability and maintenance. This new research investigates the latest trends on responsive skins to better understand their evolving role in the current global scenario. The aim of the research is to give an overview of the impact of contemporary materials and technologies on this special topic. A set of case studies have been investigated according to the adopted technologies and materials. The central role of environmental design seems to correspond to an increased simplicity of the systems, where the role of passive strategies and emerging technologies is essential. The results seem to show that generative design is transforming responsive skins, with an increasing importance of digital fabrication. Emerging materials are being tested to better understand their reliability, while parametric design seems to be more related to the generation of static surfaces working on the environmental response and communication.
