Q: Explain passive solar design?

Hi, I just read a little bit about passive solar design. My wife and I are thinking of building a green home. Can someone explain how passive solar works exactly? I mean, I can understand how you can capture solar energy as heat. And, I can understand how you can diffuse solar energy and the resulting heat. How do you achieve both effects in the same structure? What are the mechanisms that are used? So interesting! Thanks!
