In our attempt to build a comprehensive digital database on the vernacular heritage of Bangladesh, we have generated a map of rural house types based on our initial data collected from reconnaissance surveys, published articles, books, and online sources. A team of architects and architecture students volunteered to produce a series of informative illustrations of rural houses based on photographic evidence. Each drawing is supplemented with brief information like location, construction materials, a short description of physical characteristics as well as photographs of the original house where available. This is a pilot attempt and we are continuously working on enriching the database by adding new house types and physiographic, climatic, and landscape information.
