Abstract

Reducing negative impact on building and the natural environment is the main objective of sustainable design that promotes the environmental quality and the quality of building, which is mainly related to the envelope design of the building. Hence, the main research problem is determining the building envelope shape effect, whether curved or tilted, so as to be more effective in the location of solar cells on its surface and measure the efficiency of each; therefore, the study model could be divided into the design of the building envelope (independent variable) and solar absorption efficiency (variable dependent) where the basic criterion will be environmental suitability and sustainability. Methodology of the study will be based on the theoretical study, the collection of information and descriptive analytical method, in addition to the practical approach and the use of simulation software programs to reach the most important conclusions and recommendations.
