Origins and vernacular architecture.

Build­ing first evolved out of the dynam­ics between needs (shel­ter, secu­ri­ty, wor­ship, etc.) and means (avail­able and atten­dant skills). As human cul­tures devel­oped and knowl­edge began to be for­mal­ized through oral tra­di­tions and prac­tices, build­ing became a craft, and “archi­tec­ture” is the name giv­en to the most high­ly for­mal­ized and respect­ed ver­sions of that craft. It is wide­ly assumed that archi­tec­tur­al suc­cess was the prod­uct of a process of tri­al and error, with pro­gres­sive­ly less tri­al and more repli­ca­tion as the results of the process proved increas­ing­ly sat­is­fac­to­ry. What is termed ver­nac­u­lar archi­tec­ture con­tin­ues to be pro­duced in many parts of the world. Indeed, ver­nac­u­lar build­ings make up most of the built world that peo­ple expe­ri­ence every day. Ear­ly human set­tle­ments were most­ly rural.
