The workshop contains four talks by developers, researchers and software developers working with voxel facades. The talks introduces various voxel facade technologies, their development and showcase both a prototype design and a commercial available system. It will give an overview to the software requirements for voxel facades and rounds up with a talk about the anomalies when designing for a voxel facade.
