This part begins by pinpointing the cognitive roots of classification and combinativity underlying all taxonomies, indicating a universal basis for identifying and grouping types as a primary mode of cultural transmission and diffusion. It provides a brief study of the influence of biological taxonomies on architectural history and theory to more detailed studies of building types and urban morphologies by various writers. The part argues that the evolution of vernacular architecture is primarily determined by cultural customs inscribed in material form, that is, technical memes.
