2018 Euromed - Mediterranean Houses - Set for only GBP £0.97
The mild climate with plenty of sun and the abundance of stone have determined the architectural characteristics of Adriatic Croatia and the broader Mediterranean area. Mediterranean settlements and buildings bear witness to ecological principles applied in construction where the local people used the transferred knowledge about the immediate environment, as well as rationality and purposefulness in the use of natural resources and space. The construction material (stone and, to a lesser degree, wood) was taken from nature and the location of construction and building shapes were adapted to the climatic, relief, hydrological and other characteristics.
