These days, as we all are moving towards modern trends, the shape of architecture is also changing, the façade treatment and character is also shaping much like plants, people, or other living things, and the skin of a building is that surface which interacts with the world at large. The skin has a responsibility to protect the contents; much like our skin protects us. It also makes a statement to the greater world about the building, a statement that connects the form and function of the building: it might conceal and camouflage, it might flaunt, strut, pose and parade. Given these complex duties, skin is no simple matter for the architect or designer of a building, skin might fulfill the important function of insulating against cold to conserve body heat. It might equally insulate against heat and keep a creature from overheating. Differing colors and patterns might provide camouflage or generate recognition and attraction between members of a particular species. This is a study on the skin of building and the surface which interacts with the world at large.
