Passive solar building exterior

The sun-facing exterior of a building could be clad with a passive solar collection system such as black tubes enclosed in a translucent casing. In winter, a solar-powered fan at the bottom could draw in cool air and circulate the hot air at the top back into the building. In summer, the hot air could potentially drive a turbine to generate power to cool the building.
