Sun Angle Parametrics: The Tilted Roof


As discussed, there are a variety of manners in which the path of the sun could be used to inform the design of the building massing. In the first configuration of 10 homes, each form is the same yet they are rotated according to the angle of the sun on the horizon. In the second scheme, each roof tilts with regard to the sun’s azimuth angle. Lastly, both the sun angle and azimuth are combined to warp the shape of each housing unit. The results are unique homes rooted in the movement of the sun on the Summer Solstice.
