Architectural Skin Design in the Context of Sustainable Development

Under the background of the concept of sustainable development, the design of architectural skins has also shown an unprecedented development status. This paper analyzes the problems hidden in the current situation of architectural skin design, and points out that the design of today's architectural skin should aim at sustainable development. Based on the openness and developmental variability of the regional environment, the design orientation of the architectural skin design integrated into the overall design of the building and the environment is proposed. Several examples of architectural skin design were selected, and the design methods and techniques used to conform to the local physical environment and regional culture were summarized. Based on the example analysis, the article aims to explore a design path in order to solve how to realize the organic combination of the form, technology and meaning of the architectural skin through the construction of the skin design. The design path of this architectural skin is of positive significance for achieving sustainable development of the physical and human environment through the architectural design.
