Bioclimatic Architecture: Concepts and techniques

The bioclimatic architecture consists of the design of buildings taking into account the climatic conditions, taking advantage of the available resources (sun, vegetation, rain, winds) to reduce environmental impacts, trying to reduce energy consumption.

Solar trajectory

Being the sun the main energetic source that affects the bioclimatic design, it is important to have an idea of its trajectory in the different seasons of the year.

As is known, the existence of the stations is motivated because the axis of rotation of the earth is not always perpendicular to the plane of its trajectory of translation with respect to the sun, but it forms a variable angle depending on the time of the year in which we find ourselves.
