Site Plan Adjustment

The prior site plan, although listed as ‘preliminary’, confused reviewers in its simplicity and rudimentery arrangement. What I had attempted to do before was calculate potential kW harnessed from PV panels. Below is a revised site plan more closely resembling the final product. I am preserving the sun dial homes as I feel they represent the crux the project. While the surrounding homes harness power and house their occupants in the present and near future, the sundial homes are intended to function into the distant future. I have developed several models of home, both single- and dual-family. They are arranged intentionally as to preserve the extant infrastructural grid. Density is exactly doubled. 180 homes shifts to 360. This number represents the solar calendar year of Native Americans in both Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

    Thank you Luis

    We can talk through the block layout tomorrow. I suggest that you work on the “dual family with solar generators in more detail. I think that your longer term aim should be to work up three different houses to greater detail and make a model of each. Of course you may well be working on something and I would not want to interupt your progress. I am also interested to know how they are working as environmental systems. You had some good drawings of this aspect at the last review but we didn’t manage to talk about them. These were the transparent line drawings with flow indicator lines. Keep going. It is improving each time.
