Solar Architecture

Sophistication is not necessarily the product of highly developed machinery, nor intensive capital investment. It is more a way of using available equipment and resources with cunning and intelligence: the snow-domed igloo of the Eskimo remains a paragon of environmental ingenuity and geometrical sophistication. Its virtues have been rediscovered by high-technology intellects like those of Buckminster Fuller, and then transmitted to Steve Baer and the solar movement. 

from Reyner Banham, “The Architecture of the Welltempered Environment”, 1969/84
