Studies have been carried out on the shading / insolation of 10 school buildings, of which three are shown here. The sun protection devices were studied according to the orientation of each facade of the buildings. The design has considered the functional needs of the interior spaces for natural lighting and aims at avoiding glare. The diagrams show the shading requirements as well as the proposed sun protection elements that result from them.
