Abstract
This project is an analysis of the Gropius House, a Modernist icon constructed in 1938. The intent was to deconstruct and analyze several passive solar shading techniques that Walter Gropius had incorporated into the building and site design: a brise-soleil, trees,and a retractable awning. The building was modeled in Revit and analysis was performed in Ecotect.
