Buildings consume vast amounts of energy and pollute the environment in various ways but façades can play a significant role in reducing energy consumption and alleviating buildings' negative impacts on the environment. Through a case study of Shiraz, Iran, this article discusses how using smart materials in buildings' facades can help dramatically to attain SDGs 7, 9, 11 and 13.
