Sun Diagram for Alderman Bus Stop 10/7/2010

with one comment

For the bus stop project, my group (with Nicole and Jack) picked the site near Alderman Library. I’ve inserted our sun diagram below. The site receives dappled light year-round, even in the winter when the deciduous tree loses its leaves (its branches are still dense enough to block the majority of light).

Instead of strategies that screen and cool our site during the summer, we will have to design strategies to capture and heat our bus stop in the winter.

  1. See if you can get the whole tree in – so that you can get a sense of how much shade you will have in the summer. would you want to move?
