The December 2016 issue of Metal Architecture profiles the Logan International Airport parking expansion and its use of EXTECH's KINETICWALL. The feature discusses the uniqueness and innovation of the flapper facade, and the detail that went into bringing it to life, including wind tests at 130 mph.
"Various shapes, material thickness and finishes were tested, resulting in the curved anodized aluminum pieces that reflect light and ripple with the breeze," says David Bois, principal at Arrowstreet (the architecture firm that designed the parking expansion). "The move from the mass produced to a more custom approach in design and construction provides for new possibilities, which parallel clients' rising expectations."
