it is taken from line 7-8: また、建物の向きは、風や太陽の向きを考えて決められている。風の抵抗を少なくし、夏は涼しく、冬は暖かく過ごすためである。
=> "Then, concerning the buildings inclination, it was decided considering the inclination of wind and the sun. Because it takes care of that the wind resistance is low and that it is warm in the summer and that it is cool in the winter."
"to take care" is classified as an archaism on jisho http://jisho.org/search/sugosu so I wanted to ask wether this archaic interpretation is justified here or if I just understood it all wrong..^^
