How are you coping with high temperatures? Sun-gain is great, but what if it gets too hot?
This summer I had an opportunity to visit one of the most iconic architecture in the world. Check some photos of Barcelona Pavilion below and how well shaded is the interior. Not to mention this building was built 1929! How did we forget everything we knew back then?
Architecture doesn't compromise between aesthetics and performance. Its like designing a nice car that is bad in cornering.. why would you do that?
