These are the solar components of a design space that includes a full range of affordances and criteria of the built environment. By navigating this space, we develop adaptable and robust methodologies for architectural research and practice. Technologies we develop, such as the Integrated Concentrating Solar Facade (ICSF), or the Solar Enclosure for Water Reuse (SEWR), arise out of this process of navigation. They are concepts, cross-referenced with current materials, systems, and fabrication methods, and are constantly evolved as new contributor components are available.

The solar rays that intersect with a building’s exterior surfaces such as roofs and walls could be extremely useful. However, current technologies are very inefficient because they treat solar energy in a one dimensional fashion, either to generate electricity or to heat up hot water.

Energy drives all transformations.

How can we capture, transform and redistribute solar energy to provide real solutions for on-site net-zero?
