  1. Cultural continuity will predict features in vernacular house architecture.Dunn, Robert R. - Climate, Climate Change and the Global Diversity of Human Houses, 2023 - 5 Variables

    This study uses macroecological approaches to test the impact of climate, social environment, inter-group borrowing and cultural history on vernacular house architecture among 1140 societies. The authors suggest that certain features will be influenced: wall materials, ground plan, roof shape, and floor placement. They use mixed binary and multinominal regressions models to test these predictions. The results strongly support that climatic drivers, cultural continuity, and inter-group borrowing predict three out of the four features: wall materials, roof shape, and floor placement. Social drivers are a strong predictor of every feature tested.

  4. Ground plan shape will be associated with house hold form.Arwen L. Feather - Circular or rectangular ground plans: Some costs and benefits, 1996 - 2 Variables

    In the present study, Feather explores the relationship between floor plan shape and settlement permanence in order to theorize how mobility strategy influences floor plan choice. Feather incorporates the theoretical framework of previous studies by examining how floor plans and building materials vary across mobility and residential strategies, as well as social and political concerns.

  9. Anticipated dwelling use will be associated with floor area and wall height (13).Diehl, Michael W. - Architecture as a material correlate of mobility strategies: some implicatio..., 1992 - 3 Variables

    This article investigates a possible association between mobility strategy and dwelling construction. The author tests a broad hypothesis that planned duration of use for a structure is positively associated with the investment costs in building a dwelling. Some operational hypotheses are supported; others are not.

  10. "Given a rectilinear house of any size or type, one can be reasonably certain that the society is sedentary" (126)Whiting, John W.M. - Inferences from the shape of dwellings, 1968 - 2 Variables

    This study examines several correlates of the shape of floor plans of dwellings. Authors find that "whether a culture is settled or nomadic, the form of its family and the presence or absence of status distinctions are related to its house type, and the house types can in turn be inferred from the floor plan." Curvilinear houses are associated with polygyny and nomadism and rectilinear houses are associated with sedentarism, extended families, and status distinctions.
