Designing for Solar
How do we design a building to make use of solar energy? This session will explore how building design can integrate the free energy of the sun. It will work from basic principles of orientation, to passive building strategies, and finally to active solar technologies. The focus will be on timeless principles of good design, applied to real buildings in the Okanagan.
