The environmentally responsive polymeric membranes regenerate (release water), insulate, and diffuse natural daylighting during the day, while adsorbing humidity and actuating ventilation at night, a combination of strategies appropriate for a hot-humid climate.

The Dynamic Regenerative Integrated Polymeric Skins (DRIPS) system provides a fluctuating building envelope that functionally embeds a material logic that responds passively to diurnal environmental conditions. 

How can we viably capture humidity from the air for potable water?
