Shutter House

I came across this on archdaily just now and decided to post it because we’re all workin on the light modulator project. Its a shutter house designed by Shigeru Ban. Thought it would be interesting to show some examples of light modulators in current architecture. anyone know of other buildings that incorporate light modulators?

Shigeru Ban, West 19th Street, New York

On this building, Shigeru Ban once again innovates on the material use by incorporating motorized perforated metal shutters on its -dynamic- facade, which act as light-modulating privacy screen at the outer edge of each residence’s terrace adjacent to the double-height living rooms.
