A nation's architectural heritage is an important part of its identity, and a testament to its history. This article looks at the Lebanese house - a fine example of the relationship between architecture, identity and history. It describes the architectural development of Lebanese dwellings and the influence of both Muslim and Christian civilizations, which together produced this unique architectural phenomenon. The article also explains how the Lebanese house reflects the identity of the Lebanese community and nation, and how it illustrates the mosaic of different cultures and civilizations that have left their mark on Lebanon.
