Kalwall Panels Featured in “Amoeba Wall,” MIT Design Team’s Award-Winning Project

Posted by Kalwall in Architecture, Education on 03/03/2017

The Tomorrow’s Workplace 2016 design competition challenged teams of designers to define “how will offices enable workers to be the best they can be?” For one team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Kalwall® translucent sandwich panels offered the solution.

The competition was presented by Metropolis Magazine and Staples Business Advantage, a division of Staples Inc. Design
teams were tasked with creating an original piece of architecture that accommodated the needs of workers in terms of privacy, light, noise reduction and health.

Kalwall panels were an essential component of the design from MIT’s Changing Places group, giving it structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. The design received an honorable mention.

The transformable wall employs robotics technology to create a hyper-efficient, dynamically reconfigurable structure. The innovative robotics and unmatched quality of Kalwall panels combine to create a flexible piece of architecture that accommodates a wide range of activities in a small space.

Kalwall has become the go-to option for translucent building systems, providing museum-quality daylighting™
with superior thermal packages.
