Graph explaining concept of type
This is the page of types, or vernacular repetitive (or recurrent) structures. This means, different structures that follow a common pattern in one or several elements, including form, decoration, purpose, use of space, structural or building system, etcetera. As a way of example, the scheme on the left shows three different types, a Victorian house, a Samoan fale tele and a hip roof type of the Lao countryside.
The term "type," which elicits some discussion in the architectural theory world, will be used in a very general context here, simply meaning "any form of architectural classification." The form of architectural classification used here on is that of categories (abstract; shelter, for example), types (this section; the Tui'que Huë'e type, for example) and models (examples of types; the Tui'que house that Delfín built in San Pablo, for example).
