Blank Sun Chart – Solar Path Diagram – Tropical Design Architecture
The Solar Path Diagram is used to determine the shadows on the building at different times of the year. It can also have other uses. Different locations of buildings in the world will have a different sun signature, that is the position of the sun will differ becaus even if your location is at the same latitude and longitude, the earth is tilted 23.5 degrees.
That is why, the biggest mistake people make is photocopying standard designs and constructing them on location. They might save on fees but they are definitely feeling the “heat” of wrong orientation and design all their life. Having the right design matters. That’s why Architects are here. Design is a sicence and an art. We apply the best strategy to save energy on your home.
