The idea is that you could orientate this with the sloping section facing North in the Southern Hemisphere and South in the Northern Hemisphere in order to maximise sunlight input. It could be used as a passive solar dryer during the warmer months and greenhouse over the cooler months.


The shadecloth can be rolled down over the structure and anchored at the ground for the increasingly common hot days during the cooler months to lower the inside temperature and reduce sunlight if needed. A doorway could be built on one end for entry and also used as an air vent for temperature control OR separate air vents on the roof could be made for temperature control.


The CharEarthBricks can be made with a Chinese manual brickmaker found on, also mentioned on the 'Permachar WIcking Module (PWM)' page. The CEB wall would absorb some of the solar heat during the day and release it into the structure space at night time.


The PolyPIU is double glazed polycarbonate sheet/panel with an air gap for insulation. These are UV resistant and allow sunlight to enter the structure for heating and photosynthesis. I imagine they are also giant hailstone proof, which is an important feature for climate disruption. Since the design is modular, if one or more panels were destroyed they could be pulled out and replaced with a new one(s).


The frame could be wooden or steel. The structure should be wind proof, if built well.


The height of the rectangular box could be 2.5 metres and could be built as long as needed.
