In the face of diminishing resources, the importance of photovoltaics for energy production is increasing. The integration of photovoltaic systems, with their haptic and visual qualities and materiality, into buildings, presents architecture with an inspiring challenge. Intended for planners and architects, but also for the interested layman, this book outlines the huge variety of design in photovoltaic modules, using realised buildings as examples. A system catalogue gives detailed descriptions of all material aspects and suggests possibilities for an original, aesthetically pleasing use of photovoltaics.
