About Architecture: Architect's Handbook Designing for People and Place

Architects may create a dream home for a family, a house that nobody else has, or design houses that respond to community needs and create a community identity. Some cultures have developed distinctive housing styles, using locally harvested building materials and simple construction. While they meet the needs of the residents in straightforward, practical ways, these homes are often quite beautiful and subtly styled. In this section you can see some examples of how dwellings all over the world are creatively designed to meet the needs of people and place.
