Ray 2 is wooden environment responsive screen system that reacts to changes in relative humidity. Based on the material properties of wood, cut in the tangential section, the system opens in dry weather thus airing the construction. Whilst in the humid conditions it closes, not allowing the moisture into the structure. The research method is Systems Oriented Design that is mapping complex interdisciplinary data into so called GIGA-maps all the way through the design process.
