North America has a wonderful array of vernacular architecture, from the indigenous native forms to the imported European styles that have overlaid the landscape. I recently toured the Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde and was awed by their mastery of rockwork and understanding of many of the principles of sustainable architecture, as proposed at this website. We have much to learn from the way native cultures utilized local, natural materials and took advantage of solar heating and earth berming.
