It provides an optimal seasonal behavior (it allows to the passage of light in
Winter causing a heating by radiation without ventilation, and contributes to
Shade in summer, maintaining fresh the interior space). A simple structure for
The roof with no interior pillars allows a easy inner redistribution. This heavy
Roofing will allow certain thermal inertia (the most exposed in summer noon), so
During the day it transmits to the interior the night-accumulated coolness, and
At night maintains the accumulated heat during the day. Systems of natural

Temperature in summer.
