Example text

The abolition of the brick tax in 1850 resulted in a much greater employment of smaller and thus cheaper brick as a building material in England in the latter half of the 19th century and throughout the 20th (Seaborne 1964, 217). Other aspects of legislation or official policy also affect the form of buildings. In Grenada in the Caribbean traditional buildings have tile roofs rather than the wooden shingles typical on other Caribbean islands. Their use dates to serious fires in 1771 and 1778 and a subsequent law requiring houses to be built only with brick and stone and to have tile roofs (Acworth 1949, 22).

A dwelling that outlives its usefulness as the family grows may be converted to storage if its structure is still sound. This may also happen if the economic position of the family improves (Richmond 1932, 96). A recently discovered New World Dutch timber-frame house in Schohaire, New York illustrates such conversion and the difficulty of its identification without close interior inspection. The structure today represents a 19th-century carriage barn, but the exterior conceals a circa 1740 Dutch house.

They exist only up to a point, but at the same time their identification may be illuminating, so that a framework is created for investigations of problems of much more local and restricted scope. It is with this hope that the following chapters are presented. fm Page 18 Wednesday, December 13, 2006 12:49 PM ~2~ Function and Form Concepts of function and form are central to the study of traditional buildings. The widely repeated dictum that “form follows function” has fine alliteration and a kernel of truth, but on close examination the idea falls short with reference to traditional building.
