Architectural Design Process | Form, Orientation and Sunlight

Learn how you can use sunlight to locate, orient, shape, and inspire the details for your architectural design. In this video, I walk you through the design process for a project whose form, orientation, and details were all developed by carefully analyzing the solar path on the building site.
In addition, I discuss:
- how to read a solar chart (and where to download one)
- what app I prefer to use for solar planning
- passive heating and cooling
- daylighting concepts
- alternate ways to use the sun
- solar aspect, solar noon, azimuth, and altitude
- how to design for competing site agendas
