homes, adobe homes versus popular housing which will move the material and architecture without emphasis on environment. 2. social /environmental customs of the people Ex) in South Central Java the front door faces south the direction of the South Sea Goddess who holds the key to the Earth, Houses on the Charleston Battery are slanted

towards the breeze coming from the Atlantic Ocean. Florida homes have shutters on the Hurricane force side of the building. Folk Housing in the U.S. Fred Kniffen identified three hearths (nodes or origins). They are New England, Middle Atlantic, Lower
