Residential Architecture: Solar Umbrella by Brooks+ Scarpa: “..Inspired by Paul Rudolph’s Umbrella House of 1953, the Solar Umbrella provides a contemporary reinvention of the solar canopy—a strategy that provides thermal protection in climates with intense exposures..The architects carefully considered the entire site, taking advantage of as many opportunities for sustainable living as possible.  Passive and active solar design strategies render the residence 100% energy neutral. Recycled, renewable, and high performance materials and products are specified throughout.  Hard scape and landscape treatments are considered for their aesthetic and actual impact on the land..”  Sustainability, energy-neutral, natural light, privacy, interior and exterior wood detailing..
