SLR – See Love Remember

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun

© See Love Remember, 2012

This is the southwest façade of the Insitute du Monde Arabe – the Arab World Institute – in Paris.

And it is awesome, when you look at its architecture.

What you see is a wall filled with 240 geometric motifs, that serve as a brise soleil to help control the amount of light and heat coming into the building through the glass.

In fact, the entire façade consists of photo-sensitive, motor-controlled apertures!

The shutters open and close automatically depending on the light, creating an atmosphere of filtered light on the inside.

Sun. Photography. Architecture. Perfect combination 🙂
