Abstract

The paper presents selected results of an investigation over possible ways to improve Building Integrated Solar Thermal systems (BIST) on the formal level. It shows the results of a European survey intended to help defining quality in the architectural integration of BIST. A few criteria of integration are derived and presented as guidelines intended to support architects in their integration design work. Finally the paper describes a methodology for the formal development of solar thermal collectors responding to both energy and architectural needs.
