Ancient Passive-Solar Design

These photographs were taken at various ancient sites on the summer and winter solstices to illustrate these cultures’ wise use of passive-solar design and practice of solar rights.

I hope these inspire you to lift your level of understanding in regards to the changing seasonal path of the sun, and how—like the ancients—you can more consciously integrate this awareness into your life and design choices.
