  • Abstract: Cultural differences manifest themselves in how we think, in the development and use of our languages, and in our built environment. They also clearly influence how we build. This article, written from an American standpoint, examines the differences between some forms of thought in European cultures and how they mutated in the United States to begin the development of a new culture of construction.
