Roofs of Long span structures are made of steel trusses. They are can be designed with glazing ( inclined glass panels towards north sky) on north side, since in northern hemisphere there is no direct or harsh sun light in north. It provides a very consistent light indoors. Now a days even south lighting is also used for a more intense lighting. Proper care should be taken for rain water draining at glazed panels.
