This building, when elongated outward in the form of a large store, has parking along its perimeter allowing for time saved in people walking to and from cars, and saves conveyance waste in the form of a large manufacturing plant being able to have trucks deliver parts very close to the place where the parts are needed. Incidentally, because the building may be long and narrow and not square, it is safer if it catches fire because people can exit drastically quicker, and fire trucks can park near the fire and reach it quicker to put it out quicker. Other embodiments are shown inside, such as a multi-story building.

This patent application claims the benefits of provisional patent application No. 60/963,109 filed 2007, Aug. 2 by present inventor.
1. Field of the Invention
This invention relates to architecture and heating and cooling technologies of buildings.
2. Prior Art
Square or rectangular buildings are prior art, and to this inventor's knowledge, none of those type of buildings have ever been patented. Large stores, schools and manufacturing plants are almost always square or rectangular in shape and face the wrong direction which makes winter solar passive heat gain very limited, and summer energy bills very expensive. There is no prior art of this trapizoidal type of building. The way buildings are presently built, particularly large buildings, there are no efforts remotely close to maximizing passive solar heat gain, but rather most consideration is focused on maximizing squareness of a building. Also buildings are not built in consideration for minimizing distance people walk to and from cars. Also buildings are not built considering minimizing distance a good is required to travel within a building from the shipping door. In a manufacturing plant, it is waste to have a forklift carry a good 1 mile with many different stopping and stacking points before it has value added to it. This method of pointlessly carrying around objects is flawed because the building is built wrong in the first place. Another negative aspect of present day and prior art buildings is that they frequently face the road they're on, which frequently results in a south side of a building that's windowless and if it has windows, it is skewed, making winter passive solar heat gain limited and summer overheating costly.
In accordance with the present invention, A trapezoid thin shaped building facing south.
FIG. 1, the preferred embodiment of the building. Southside window 16, west side wall 18, north side wall 20, east side wall 22, Window Shade 24 and 26, roof 28 and green plants 30. FIG. 2 is the preferred embodiment in any large building design. Tunnel 48 shows how to go from one part of the building to the other. FIG. 3 is the side of the building showing upsidedown U shaped basement walls 40 and 42, winter sun 34, for passive solar heat gain is shown as 38, and summer sun 32 is reflecting 36. Passive cooling exists on the basement walls 44 and 46. Stones 41 are draining any water that does penetrate the outside section of the upside down U. FIG. 4 is the double colored window blind. Reflective color 50 and Dark color 52. Insulation material 54 is also shown. These type blinds are put on all the windows in the building. FIG. 5 is an alternative embodiment in the form of a 2 story house, or a tall building.
