Automated Bris Soleil Sheathing

Excuse my French - Surface Area and Shading increased dependant on interior Temp.

I can't find the spelling of "Brise Solarie", I assume it is French for Sun Block. My concept is a system of siding, shingles on the Southern, Western and upward faces of your house that will, when interior temperatures warrent, be pulled to form something like a shadow box. I am sure that the tech needed to do this is much less than what they put into your average car these days.
Yes, not Brise Solarie. (thanks thumbwax)

He really digs the Doppler radar, and braces himself to dip into position. Quite funny. Unintentionally. [thumbwax, Oct 17 2004]


       Bloc du Soleil, as in Ban du Soleil, what Orange weathermen such as Dallas Raines of abc7 in SoCal use.

       Must say I was hoping for an automatic idea illustrator, but this is nice, too.

       Hm, yeah, "bris soileil" - that would be the outdoor version of the ceremony, right?
