That is why we have the fins projecting from the structure, we only get direct sunlight on the glass from April through September as the house is directly north facing.
Furthermore the whole north side opens up to allow cool breezes from the pool to cool the house, as well as from the koi pond on the south side.
The house is furthermore designed to create a chimney effect, by opening north facing sliding doors on top, and south facing openings at the bottom the cool air from the south side is sucked into the house and the hot air is exhausted at the top.

The roof of this could be our garage and walkway cover, pitched up from the rear of the parking bays toward an imaginary peak at the center of the arc of the garage structure. We could still use the Polycarbonate panels, but with a smaller dimension i-beam as ribbing in the radial direction.
