FILT3RS is a platform that disseminates new knowledge about a broad understanding of types of openings and filtering devices that connect our buildings from the interior to the exterior
Filt3rs aims to promote the design of windows, balconies, covered balconies and filtering elements, such as shutters, blinds and lattices, to achieve the variety of possibilities required by our climates and our habits to control the relationship between the interior and the exterior environment.
knowledge may be applied to:
students to give them opportunities to participate and have advanced study material. Through Filt3rs students learn to observe and are provided tools to understand [PS1] the richness of traditional windows and the value of the designs of many contemporary architects.
teachers to provide them with teaching material, contacts with companies of the facade industry and incentives through prizes and publications and to introduce students to this field. All teachers have an internal virtual classroom where they may receive and correct the work of their students.
professionals to give them access to reference material, notes on regulations and documentation about technical innovations for young architects to have all the documentation they may need to design the most beautiful[PS2] and efficient windows.
The platform is supported by a network of universities coordinated by the Department of Architectural Technology of the School of Architecture of Barcelona(Escuela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura Barcelona).
