nouvel's institute du monde arabe in paris has an old-school approach to this, a facade of occuli mechanisms, which like a camera or pupil, dilate and contract to allow more (or less) light. A nice idea, but they boke or never really worked, and so function now as a visual motif rather than as the regulating and i guesse you could say 'interactive' mechanisms they were intended as. too bad.
Sounds like a cool topic you're working on, hope it goes well. you could also try asking around on this forum:
