BioSkin: a green building siding inspired by tree bark. BioSkin is a type of siding for buildings consisting of a system that creates shaded areas on a building's surface just like tree bark does on its own exterior. By acting like heatsinks the siding blocks excess heat from collecting on the outside of a building. The bark creates a rough surface that allows for many shaded areas to occur. This enables the convection of air to start to move heat away from the tree. BioSkin siding mimics this fun
