Form language (Germany)


This is the form language of traditional German architecture.

Walls are made of wood and clay, or brick and stone.

There are glass windows.

Roofs are sloping, sometimes tiled, sometimes with wooden shingles.

Both Germany and Japan had houses, buildings, bedrooms, eating places, etc. - but they were built differently. They share the same functions, but their construction is different.
