I just found a video of a Thermotectonic skyscraper

Standard

The caption for the video pretty much explains the whole process:

“Study into skyscraper design utilizing Moving Color thermocromatic tiles on exterior. Thermocromatic tiles change color with the ambient temperature. In cold weather the building tiles turns black and absorb heat. In hot weather the building tiles turn white reflecting heat and thereby cooling the building.”
