patterns

two buildings one idea: 
The university building has a fixed metal skin with different sized circles which create a patterned protection from the sun.
   
university Paris
Institut du Monde Arabe
The windows of the Parisian museum are reminiscent of the intricate Arabic patterns seen in many buildings — but with a twist. 
Those metal eyes host to a changing and complex lighting effect that layers daylight from the 30,000 apertures. Since the kinetic wall is facing the south, the building controls thermal exposure and interior lighting.
