Modular Pneumatic Façade System (MPFS), attempts to juxtapose key characteristics of biological design(modularity, robustness, homeostasis, and adaptive)with smart technologies (material, sensor, actuation,and control) in order to create a kinetic façade systemthat respond and interact with its environment in real-time.Similar to how an independent cell coordinates witheach other to undergo certain tasks in multicellularsystems in nature, the MPFS is consisted of autonomousmodules that collectively achieve assigned functions.Each MPFS module is integrated with its own sensor,actuation, and control components which contribute tothe robustness of the system as well as allow it to adaptto external stimulus. As an aggregated system, MPFS’shas potentials to initiate emergent behaviors at theglobal level due to the chain reaction betweenindividual modules at the local level. Inspired by thehydro skeletons and muscular hydrostats in nature (e.g.elephant trunk, starfish, octopus arm, etc.), the
