Modern societies are paying more and more attention to energy consumption. Nations are implementing and systemizing policies on low carbon green growth to reduce greenhouse gas emission while various studies are being conducted on eco-friendly architectures and energy reducing technologies in relation to buildings. In Korea, since 39% of the total energy consumption is accounted for by buildings, the energy consumption issues of buildings have global implications that are linked to other areas

To address issues related to the energy consumption of buildings in the modern era, the importance of building skins has been emphasized since it has the potential to make a direct impact in terms of reducing energy, and due to the developments of IT which provides a wireless network environment, intelligent technologies such as the IOT are being widely expanded, and building skins that were once regarded as fixed exteriors are now adapting to the environment in the current era. Therefore, this study aims to examine building skins that have great potential as a high value added industry in the near future and present fundamental data on intelligent skin design and the optimized types that can be adopted to intelligent skin design by ascertaining the characteristics and planning factors of each category by studying a variety of cases from home and abroad.
