    tools of understanding

    doing some environmental research on the site and, as always, I am captivated with the pragmatic beauty of some of these tools.

    take the wind-rose for example:

    and the solar path diagram:

    also, I have created an experiential material palette of the surrounding site:
    from the vernacular to the junk, what can these materials teach us about how to engage the environment and the larger context?

      seems like a question a lot of people struggle with q ... i suppose the answers are as varied as the materials you've documented.

      what program did you use for the wind roses? I've allways had to request that information from others (airport weather services, etc.) or find it online myself.

      hi Arjun,

      the wind roses were produced with the weather tool:

      they have great software that makes this research and subsequent analysis of models a hell of a lot easier.

      that software is real nice, thanks for sharing.
