A building skin is the physical separator between the conditioned and unconditioned environment of a building including the resistance to air, water, heat, light, and noise transfer. The skin is an outer covering that maintains the structure during different weather conditions. Building skin (also known as building envelope)is a specialized area of architectural practice that is drawn from various sectors of building science and climate control.
In Africa, this is somewhat not so popular due to the equatorial climate but various structures have experienced weathering due to ageing and some due to the exposure to harsh environment exposing them to rust and general aesthetic depreciation.
The main function of putting on skins on building is first to support a structure by helping it resist and transfer structural dynamic loads, secondly is to control the flow of matter and energy of all times. Lastly is to meet the aesthetic finish of a structure causing it to flow with different themes.
