summary Architectural Sciences and Design Methods Working Paper ASDM- 13 A method for the design of fixed external sunshades was developed, using a computer for calculating the exact geometry and a plotter for presentation. The method is applied to the design of the elevations of a hospital building under construction in Haifa, Israel. The emphasis is on finding the form of the correct shape of windows and the necessary sunshades so as to avoid penetration of direct sun during the summer. The method preserves the freedom of the architect and provides reasonable structures and pleasing elevations
