It is a unique international platform for leaders from the worlds of science, business, politics, arts and society. Where the presentation of the Architect Moath Rababh on the, Kinetic Interactive Facade in the Middle East.

This innovative project explores the potential of smart; moveable building components to achieve customized shading, variable privacy properties, and introduce complex visual qualities. The project combines per formative design strategies and sustainable design principles, with parametric modeling and digital fabrication, within the contemporary theoretical and cultural context. The focus of this research is on architecture where physical movement is an integral part of the primary functional and formal nature of the building component. With embedded computing using input and output devices, the systems are no longer static but dynamically move and respond.

The Falling Walls Lab is an interdisciplinary forum for aspiring scientists and professionals from around the world.
