If the history of technology has taught us anything it’s that automation is a force be reckoned with. At some undefined point in the second half of the 20th Century, it became apparent that most procedures, tasks, and processes, that could viably be automated, eventually would be.
Things that used to be manual – like dishwashing, changing television channels, opening garage doors, and even flying a plane or driving a car – are now either fully automated or heading in that direction.
The same is surely true for shading systems. When combined with the latest high performance fabrics, automation systems deliver a range of benefits, including improved child safety, convenience, security, comfort, energy savings, environmental friendliness, and more. Together, they point to the conclusion that many types of manual blinds and curtains are on the way out.
This session outlines the latest automated shading systems on the market, examines how they work, and shines a light on the best and most effective ways for specifiers to integrate them into their projects.

According to Le Corbusier, the struggle for it underpins the history of architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright described it as a “beautifier of buildings”. And Motoko Ishii famously equated it to life itself. Indispensable, life-affirming and metamorphic, light underpins all architectural and design efforts.
