I have been taught that when treating west and east facades, vertical shading is preferred.
While reading the book: Heating, Cooling, Lighting: Sustainable Design Methods for Architects, in chapter 9, page 283, key ideas #9 says: "On the east and west facades, the horizontal overhang is preferred over vertical fins" which is the opposite of what I have learned.
Can someone clarify for me? Am I missing anything here?
