More thought on the solar shader - curve!

25 October 2012: Having decided that I might be able to make a wing shaped louvre, I thought harder about it and realised that a thin crescent shape might work better than a wing, especially in Winter. It would bounce the light better into the kitchen, providing it was bright finish on both sides.
Back to model making!: it is extraordinary how quickly it is possible to devise or refine a mechanism with some paper (or card), pins, scissors and glue.
Then I worked with ArchiCAD to work out the spacing of the uprights and to workout the size of the mechanism that swivels the louvres.
