Architectural Fusion

Another building trend that is emerging in new houses is the  use of red tile roofing for areas such as patios, carports and stairwells. The roofing seems to have a very Asian flare to it and reminds me very much of temples or pagodas in South East Asia. It’s not a style that I would necessary term as Arabic and I’m not entirely sure that it fits in with the rest of the style of the house (but that’s just my opinion).

Anyway I had to share a photo of this one particular house in Wadi Musa. It seems that people world over can suffer a  case of “keeping up with the Jones” or whatever the neighbours do I will do it bigger and better.

And please tell me you can see the resemblance to an Asian temple.
