Driving to and from Chicago recently, I was unusually struck by the design feature of using shade trees to cool houses. Nothing new, but it resonated with me for some reason. The houses are all on the east side of the trees. Afternoon sun is much hotter than morning sun. I just remember all the bunches of trees and open spaces.
Just a first attempt here, but will continue to do work with this premise in mind.
