There are more ways to obtain more information. One important source are publicatons from the International Energy Agency's Solar Heating and Cooling Programme. Two so-called research tasks have been / are focusing on solar energy in buildings: IEA SHC Task 41 Solar Energy and Architecture and Task 51 Solar Energy in Urban Planning.
