Excerpt from Domestic Architecture

Shelter. - In the beginning man realized that it was necessary to provide for himself a comfortable protection against hostile forces. To accomplish this he used of necessity the materials at hand so that we may assume that hunters and fishermen lived in caves, that tillers of the soil lived in huts of turf or stone and that shepherds and nomads lived in tents. At all times the need of shelter has been the incentive for the construction of dwelling places. The main factors determining the nature of these structures are climate, geology, geography, society, industry and even religion and politics. (See Plate I.)

The ?sthetic Sense. - Races of men arrived at the primitive stage of civilization at widely separated periods of time, or having arrived at about the same time some races failed to make progress. With all peoples it is apparent that the aesthetic sense was early developed. Having made clay articles to be used in their domestic life they became dissatisfied with the plainness of them and took it upon themselves to decorate the surfaces with crude paintings. Also, having made rude dwelling places they set about ornamenting the walls, posts, and lintels with carving, sculpture and paintings. From these early attempts in art, decorative details were ever after closely associated with constructive principles and together they formed the art of architecture.
