Abstract: In the context of sustainability photovoltaic technology, with the leveling costs of electrical generation, is seen as an inevitable future towards renewable energy. Amongst the modes of application, building integrated photovoltaics take precedence due to the capability then to decentralize electrical generation, hence reducing wastage costs in transmission. Therefore, this paper would like to discuss the design decisions and its discourses in the topic of integrating photovoltaics (PV) with architecture. Through the relationship of technology and architecture during the Modernist movement, certain concepts would be highlighted to frame the dialogue between technology and architecture. Subsequently, this paper underlines the evolution of six contestable logics towards sustainable architecture, and through a case study approach exemplify the perspectives each interpretation went through during the design decision, when implementing PV with architecture. Through understanding what PV stands for in each project, formulate a framework in which modern day discourses between PV integration and architecture could then be discussed on.
