Reacting solar components for building envelope design and architectural realisation.

There is now much interest in utilising the "envelope" of buildings to make the most of available sunlight. In summer months, for example, an office needs to belight without becoming unbearably hot. Such a situation happens all too often andnecessitates costly air conditioning. In winter months, with the diminished intensityof the sun, the same office needs to make the most of the sun's rays withoutradiating out its own internal heat. Such requirements demand a mixture of adaptableand static solar components that are integrated into the building envelope.
