  10. 10. Building Materials Materials were chosen based on availability & climate. 1. Wood was readily available in China. Traditional Chinese wooden architecture changed little over thousands of years. 2. View of the city of Machu Picchu constructed from stone cut from the surrounding mountains. 11Oct-15 mechanical 1 (a)
  11. 11. 3. Ruins of Babylon (present day Iraq). All that remains of the famous city-state is a mound of broken mud-brick dwellings. 4.Greece consists almost entirely of limestone with many sources of fine marble. Therefore many Greek structures were constructed with limestone and marble. 12Oct-15 mechanical 1 (a)
