    wrote his book, which was modeled on "A Pattern Language", the DFHs up in the hills were doing the field research that proved the concepts. Some of these buildings are still functioning effectively after 40 years.

    Remember, the beauty of the concept is that even the most crude of applications of the passive solar principles yield dramatic results.

    I took architecture students on a tour of some of these buildings a third of a century ago.  That's what is so frustrating to me; the information has been around longer than that, for those bright enough to pick up on it.  Hell, Native Americans knew about this hundreds of years before Europeans got here. Just look at the siting of the ruins at Canon de Chelle.

    don't always believe what you think...
