Web Abstract: 
Discusses passive solar strategies for school buildings. Examples of passive solar heating from indigenous architecture are cited, as are more recent sun-oriented structures. Similarities among the buildings in materials use, orientation, and ventilation are noted. Ideal orientation of school buildings to take advantage of the sun and be protected from winds, as well as preferable interior arrangements to distribute the solar benefit are discussed.
