Though it seems like nothing but a nice home, this structure by Harrison and White is an extensively researched, well-engineered project. The shade structure attached to the roof of the home is designed to block sun rays from every angle and redirect them to appropriate places.
Harrison and White went through an extensive planning process for the project. Using computerized models, they tracked the path of daylight from sunup to sundown and every place in between. The result is a home that is not designed, but engineered for light optimization from the inside out.
The Harrison and White Shade Structure is Scientifically Accurate
1. Light Optimization Technology - The engineered shade shingles include technology that tracks the path of daylight from sunup to sundown to optimize light usage and possibly leads to further research in sustainable and efficient energy solutions.
2. Scientifically Accurate Shade - The shade structure is designed to block sun rays from every angle, which inspires further innovation in shading solutions for homes and buildings that provide more durable, functional, and efficient shaded spaces.
3. Engineered Living Spaces - Harrison and White's project is engineered from the inside out, allowing for the design of living spaces that are functional while still being aesthetically pleasing to create unique and innovative homes.
1. Architecture - The use of computerized models in the planning process could change the way architects design and plan residential and commercial spaces, creating more sustainable, efficient, and engineered structures.
2. Construction - The engineered shade shingles offer new opportunities for construction companies in the fabrication and implementation of shades that could lead the way to a more functional and energy-efficient building designs.
3. Renewable Energy - The focus on light optimization could lead to the creation of more sustainable and efficient energy solutions in the field of renewable energy that could help minimize the amount of energy used in households.
