We provide a conceptual framework for addressing how content for a media fa{\cc}ade may be designed taking into account the specific qualities of the display of media fa{\cc}ade interfaces: scale, shape, pixel configuration, pixel shape, and light quality. We address how these qualities of the interface may be investigated using a repertoire of design tools in different modalities ranging form physical models over mixed reality models to virtual representations. As the main case we present and discuss five design tools used in the design of the media fa{\cc}ade of a 300 metres long low-resolution curvilinear media fa{\cc}ade part of the Danish pavilion at the Expo 2010 in Shanghai.",
