Concept Model No.1

The balconies twist from top to bottom, from tight to loose. This maximizes passive shading where sunlight/latent heat would be most intense. The circular form was only chosen for ease of model making, ideally it would be an elliptical floor plate. I want to study other patterns to this concept...or the possibility of an outer skin that is carved away to reveal this spiraling stratification. Thoughts? Yay? Nay? Pos-si-blay?
