The adaptivecapacity in creating intelligent glass surfaces will be investigated using the principlesof solar absorbance and active fluidic conductivity management as an energy system.To act as a thermal adsorption layer by applying bio-logically inspired engineeringaims, of capture in enabling thermal transfer and control to regulate material composition.The creation of an adaptive cooling layer, by responsive measures to mirror oureco-systems through the employment of programmable self-awareness measures to regulatesolar adsorption. These strategies for adaptation could enable the transformationof tall buildings, from mere material entities to mimic the intelligent surfacesof trees. Nature’s eco-systems are living multi-functional mechanicalinformation systems of chemical composition forming hierarchical structures.They have the ability to learn and adapt to changing climatic circumstance byself-regulation of solar adsorption, to achieve material thermal management.These programmable controls of adaptive material performance change inrelationship to solar capture. Could this be harnessed to exploit the functionalitiesand behavior of materials on the surfaces of buildings to act as an energy system,by the application of bio-logically inspired engineering aims: 1 Material absorbency:thermal conductivity adsorption of solar irradiance. 2 Adaptive real-timeperformance: material autonomy.
