Howard Alan Architects has 30 years of experience as a design/build group specializing in organic architecture, passive and active solar and alternative energy conservation.

Solar Architecture 203 will focus on how to incorporate passive and active solar energy into building design and why it is important.

Howard Alan's Studio is in Lincoln Park about 1.5 miles west of Lake Michigan.  The entire 2nd floor is designed to capture the sun's heat and store it in the masonry walls, concrete floor, and the 5 fiberglass tubes of water.  A radiant heating system is embedded in the concrete floors for back up heat.  The building is insulated on the exterior side of the outer walls acting exactly like a winter coat to keep our body heat from radiating to a colder exterior.
