"This film's thoughtfully interpreted design considerations and amply illustrated architectural examples will provide a good background resource for advocates of passive-solar design and regional architecture in community groups and in industrial arts and design studies in community colleges."
"Attention is readily maintained through high-quality photography and audio. Although the material can be considered technical in nature, every attempt appears to have been made to present it in terms understandable to general viewers. The film would be beneficial to college and university students majoring in areas of design, energy, and building construction, and to general adult viewers."
