So Islanders depend on rainwater as their source of fresh drinking water, and it’s collected in cisterns from the run-off from the distinctive, stair-stepped, white roofs that Mark Twain described as “icing on a cake.” These distinctive, heavy stoned roofs have stood the test of time and weather for hundreds of years.
The practical principle behind Bermuda’s roofs has been around since the late 1600s, and although much of St. George’s early history is buried in the Town Square, St. George’s probably comprises the largest concentration of authentic, standing, colonial architecture in the New World, because the buildings were made of stone and not timber.

To understand the evolution of bank design, it is also necessary to grasp the fundamentals of America’s banking and financial history, which go hand-in-hand with the creation of bank architecture.
While the worldwide evolution of architectural styles played a major factor in the way banks look, developments in the financial history of the nation—depressions, panics, government monetary and banking policy—also played a critical role.
With more than 200 photographs and illustrations, this work studies the evolution of American bank architecture from 1781 (when America’s first bank was founded) to new banks of the present day.

The strong sense of gradations of dominance and submission " in architecture corresponded with the owners' consciousness of their stature in the extended community.

Jefferson's eclectic vision, combining antique and Palladian concepts, was accomplished with mechanical precision and represented, in Karl Lehmann's words, "the law of nature in architectural terms."
