Together with my group members, we discussed the issue of shading on Arizona State University Tooker House for our Building Technologies in Architecture course.

We defined the architectural elements used for shading in this building specifying its material and evaluated the type of the shading, the angle of the sunshade, and the use of material with reference to the geographical location and climatic conditions in which it is situated. Additionally, we discussed the effect of these elements and their material on heat loss/heat gain, view, daylight, glare, air movement.
