      Carol M. The leaded glass window panes gave way to doublerhung sashes. The greatest improvement was the abandonment of the long, sloping, lean-to roof. Knowledgeable builders were scarce in the colony during the first years. Such suburbs — and cheaper imitations of them — were built all over England from the s.

      Avant-garde engineering mixed with reassuringly familiar architectural styles created an atmosphere of confidence. Spanish settlers in Florida and the American Southwest brought a rich heritage of architectural traditions and combined them with ideas borrowed from Hopi and Pueblo Indians. Scholar, writer, teacher, and painter, Reynolds became a spokesman for the new, typically English kind of art that was developing. His buildings introduced a Japanese serenity to a country largely populated by Europeans, and his notions about organic architecture are studied even today. Soldiers returning from World War I brought a keen interest in French housing styles.

      The thatch was piled layer upon layer until it was about one foot thick. Brick and timber construction was vulnerable to fire, and many mills lit by oil or gas burnt down. It also served as a nursery where infants could be near the mother but not underfoot. This simple design and hardy construction technique are said to have been brought to America from Sweden.

The central-chimney saltbox plan became standard and appeared with minor variations throughout New England. The Assembly also renamed the village Williamsburg. Schindler took modern designs, including the A-Frame house, to southern California.

Sculpture was used more and more to decorate churches. He was probably right, in that the easy mix of brick-built semi-detached and detached houses in wide streets with deep gardens became the aspiration of millions.

The buildings were constructed of wood beams and clay bound with straw and, possibly, saltmarsh grass. The sequence of colonial architecture, whether in New England or on the James River, was that of necessity; one can see the shift from crude shelters and defensive outposts to the construction of dwellings, churches, homes, and public buildings of a planned community with a definite future.

The theorical work of Archigram provided significant inspiration of the High-tec movement. Built for the well-to-do, the house reflects New Haven life style prior to the American Revolution. Many new homes built during periods of growth and prosperity borrow details from historic styles and combine them with modern features.

Normally they adopted the style of architecture fashionable when they left England, though by the latter half of the century, improving transport and communications meant that even quite remote parts of the Empire had access to many publications, such as The Builder magazine.

They did this with whatever materials were at hand, according to whatever methods of construction they could remember, devise,or observe.

Moreover, this volume was the first to offer thorough coverage of early architecture throughout the United States, including homes, schools, meeting houses, and commercial buildings in the Northeast; Georgian structures in Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas, the Middle Colonies, and New England; the French Colonial style in the Mississippi Valley; the baroque architecture of mission churches and ranch homes in the Southwest and California, and the nationwide growth of Neoclassic and Romantic styles.
