An eco-façade is a type of façade with high performance that helps reduce building energy. Different types of materials and technologies can be used in this type of façade, which can also be sustainable. One of the most important features of this type of façade is to be very high energy efficient. Façades can also provide a canvas for informative engagements about ecology and sustainability. It is observed that digital technologies are increasingly replacing analog communication in urban space. We explore the sustainable potentials of the digital technologies for creating eco-didactic façade.
