“Need to include solar in architectural education”

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 28, 2018
Sylvio PodestaBrazil ranks fourth on the list of the world’s largest solar thermal markets, but very few installations have been integrated into a facade or roof. Sylvio de Podestá is the architect behind one of the buildings that have roof-integrated collectors. At this hotel in Belo Horizonte, also known as Brazil’s solar capital, the collectors are at a slope guaranteed to maximise efficiency (see image). Usually, solar systems are added during construction, long after the design stage.
