This book offers a new, unconventional outlook on architecture, presenting some aspects of its evolution. It demonstrates how prehistoric people developed the art of building when trying to solve increasingly complicated spatial and structural problems. The book shows the activity of building to be in synergy with the parallel advancement of the human ability to think in symbolic and abstract terms. The anthropological approach of this book will allow scientists to formulate the general principles and regularities of the development of architecture within a new field of studies, named the "Ontogenesis of Architecture".
