Americas Countries list

Graph introducing the database of countries
Some say that borders in the world are just artificial, convened. This could be evident in how local building types cross border lines and continue to be present in neighboring countries, or even in distant countries (like features of Chinese or Indian or European architecture are present in the United States, for example). However, those "artificial," politically shaped borders end up re-shaping after a while local architecture types.
A country-based division is the most straightforward way of introducing a database of world architecture. The home page of countries in Ethnoarch features an updated list (as of October 2006) of countries and territories of the world. The list links to a description of each country's ethno-architecture, and also to a list of groups (language groups) belonging to each country, as well as their architectural types.
• Click on the country name for the info page. The info page will display the description and other information available on the country in the database.

This is page number 1. Countries span across 3 pages. Each page displays 20 countries.

Great architectural diversity despite the country's relatively small size (being one of South America's smallest countries). This is connected to Ecuador's varied topography, as the steep Andean mountain system divides…
