Mesopotamia houses were built from tall reeds placed on the ground in parallel rows where the tops were tied together and covered with matting. [1]

The architecture of Mesopotamia is ancient architecture of the region of the Tigris-Euphrates river system (also known as Mesopotamia ), encompassing several distinct cultures and spanning a period from the 10th millennium BC, when the first permanent structures were built, to the 6th century BC. Among the Mesopotamian architectural accomplishments are the development of urban planning, the courtyard house, and ziggurats. [2] An architect in Mesopotamia built and designed houses according to their city and what god they worshiped. [3] Architects learn about city gods, to how houses were made, to the many creations of Mesopotamia. [3]

Mesopotamia houses were built from tall reeds placed on the ground in parallel rows where the tops were tied together and covered with matting. [1] Homes of the rich were sometimes three storied and the doors led to a courtyard in Mesopotamia houses. [1] Even to this day, the Marsh house is a common site in Mesopotamia. [1] In ancient Mesopotamia, the guest house has long been legendary and was known as the MUDHIF house. [1] Although Sumerian cylinder seals depict reed houses, the courtyard house was the predominant typology, which has been used in Mesopotamia to the present day. [2]

The materials used to build a Mesopotamian house were similar but not exact as those used today: mud brick, mud plaster and wooden doors, which were all naturally available around the city, although wood was not common in some cities of Sumer. [2] The materials used by ancient Sumerians to build their houses were dried mud bricks. [1] Most houses had a square center room with other rooms attached to it, but a great variation in the size and materials used to build the houses suggest they were built by the inhabitants themselves. [2] The smallest rooms may not have coincided with the poorest people; in fact, it could be that the poorest people built houses out of perishable materials such as reeds on the outside of the city, but there is very little direct evidence for this. [2] The homes of the affluent were built of sun-dried bricks while those of people of lesser means would have been constructed from reeds. It should be noted, however, that these buildings were still considered houses and were not the `huts' so often imagined. [10] It tended to be used for the houses of kings and gods rather than the homes of ordinary people. (285-286). [10]

Wealthier Mesopotamians had bigger houses which meant more rooms including a kitchen, bathroom, servant’s quarters, and was built in the shape of a U which often had a garden in the center. [3] Wealthier Sumerians had homes with several rooms and the house was built in the shape of a U with a garden in the center. [11] Sumerian cylinder seals also depict houses built from reeds not unlike those built by the Marsh Arabs of Southern Iraq until as recently as 400 AD. The Sumerians also developed the arch, which enabled them to develop a strong type of roof called a dome. [2] Ancient Mesopotamian houses were either built of mud brick or of reeds, depending on where they were located. [12] Houses built of reeds had the additional advantage of being portable. [13] Their whole way of life revolves around the marshes they live in floating houses made entirely of reeds harvested from the open water and Qasab, a kind of giant grass that looks like bamboo, which can grow as tall as 25 feet (7.6 meters). [13] Houses had an entrance, a mud wall and a hearth, and they played a very important role in the spiritual life of the communities. [1] Brick was the ordinary building material, and with it cities, forts, temples and houses were constructed. [2] People with more resources probably lived in two-story houses, which were plastered and whitewashed and had about ten or even twelve rooms, equipped with wooden doors, although wood was not common in some cities of Sumer. [14] The rich people, primarily the priests and merchants lived in double stories dwellings, whereas the trader people and craftsmen had single story houses. [1] The society comprised of wealthy merchants and priests who belonged to the upper classes, and there were houses of craftsmen and trades people as well. [1]

[10] An architect had to learn about different kinds of houses, many different creations, and many gods in different cities. [3] The houses in the cities were very close together with most sharing a wall with its neighbor. [11] The external walls were featureless with only a single opening connecting the house to the street. [2]

Most houses (approximately 90 square meters) had a square center room with other rooms built around an area that provided access to the light and ventilated the interior. [14] Later houses started to be built of sandstone and mud bricks which was more insulated. [3] Ma'dan houses are architectural marvels all built without any nails, wood or glass. [13] In the poorer sections houses were built close together for cheaper construction costs. [3] Houses were built in different sizes and shapes according to your class. [3] Older houses in Sumer were made of bundles of reeds mixed with mud. [3] These mud brick houses were more permanent and larger than the reed dwellings. [11] The priests lived close by in two story mud brick houses, hardened by the sun. [16] These groups lived the furthest from the ziggurat in one story mud brick houses. [16] The kings and officials also lived close to the ziggurats, usually in two story houses made of the same material. [16] It takes as little as three days to build a house, using a method that has remained unchanged for the thousands of years since these people have inhabited the marshes. [13] The islands on which the Ma'dan build their elaborate floating houses are called tuhul, and while they might look stable, they aren't. [13] To build a simple house, tall marsh plants would be uprooted, gathered together, and tied into tight bundles. [10] A hearth, placed in the courtyard or in a separate room, was an important part of the house. [14] This courtyard called tarbaṣu (Akkadian) was the primary organizing feature of the house, all the rooms opened into it. [2] This house called é ( Cuneiform : 𒂍, E 2 ; Sumerian : e 2 ; Akkadian : bītu ) faced inward toward an open courtyard which provided a cooling effect by creating convection currents. [2] Most houses (wealthy or poor) had a courtyard for natural light with much needed security and protection from long rains and heavy snows. [3] The downstairs room for the wealthy was reserved for guests and houses had a kitchen, fireplace and bathrooms. [1] The ground floor in two-story houses, usually consisted of reception room, kitchen, and toilet and servant’s quarters. [14]

Those who could not afford to buy comfortable, luxurious beds and chairs enjoyed sleeping on mats of woven straw or reeds, which covered the floor of the house. [14] For a front or back door, a reed mat would be draped over an opening (either at the ends of a rectangular house, or on the side of a circular one). [14] Evidence suggests that the houses were white-washed on the inside and outside thus giving the homes a cleaner look. [11] A circle of holes would be used to make a circular house; two parallel rows to make a rectangular one. [14] The city was provided with towers and stood on an artificial platform; the house also had a tower-like appearance. [2] The houses had a central courtyard for natural light and air while providing the much needed security and protection from bad weather. [1] Some houses had courtyards with a small garden or fruit trees. [12] These people lived a little further away from the ziggurat in one story mud brick houses. [16] In a hot climate like Iraq’s, a well-designed house must protect its dwellers from the sun’s searing heat. [14] Demons were feared who had wings like a bird, and the foundation stones- or rather bricks- of a house were consecrated by certain objects that were deposited under them." [2] Of the private houses nothing, of course, remains; but they are represented on the slabs as being of several stories in height, the ground floor as usual having only a door and no windows. [2] If the house was rectangular and there was an opening at either end, its owners may have enjoyed cross-ventilation as well [14] Houses are mostly known from Old Babylonian remains at Nippur and Ur. [2] The historian Karen Rhea Nemet-Nejat notes that, "the purpose of a house in southern Iraq was to provide shelter from the twelve hours of unrelenting heat - the climate from May to September" (121). [10] The earliest Sumerian houses were built of bundles of reeds but after cities began to develop, sun baked mud brick was used. [11] Among basic furniture in the Sumerian house, there were low tables, beds with wooden frames and high-backed chairs and kitchens with household vessels; there were also baskets and chests made of reed. [14]

According to ancient lore, a God had screamed at a home owner and told him to bring down the reed house and live in a boat. [1] Sumer had no trees for timber but it had the huge reeds in the marshes, and this raw material was widely used in building of reed houses. [14] People lived in reed houses near the rivers and in wetland areas. [12]

In northern Mesopotamia on the western bank of the Tigris River, Mesopotamians built Assur. [3] Wilder was writing fiction, of course, not history, and there was much about Mesopotamian history still unknown at the time he wrote his play; still he was wrong about what the modern world, even the world of his day, knew about the people of Mesopotamia. [10] Like those of the modern world, the people of the ancient regions of Mesopotamia loved their families, worked their jobs, and enjoyed their leisure time. [10] Generally speaking, though, from the rise of the cities in c. 4500 BCE to the downfall of Sumer in 1750 BCE, the people of the regions of Mesopotamia did live their lives in similar ways. [10] The priests were at the very top of the social pyramid because they were the closest to the gods that the people of Mesopotamia believed in. [16] A priest in Mesopotamia was responsible for making sure everyone behaved in a way that would make the gods happy. [16]

Enlil was the god of fates and his temple was one of the most important temple in all of Mesopotamia. [3] The first doctors and dentists of Mesopotamia were priestesses who attended to people in the outer court of the temple. [10] - When the Sumerian civilization began to flourish, also daily life in Mesopotamia began to change. [14] Mesopotamia doesn’t exist today but they did create civilization as we know it today. [3] Mesopotamia was never a single, unified civilization, not even under the Akkadian Empire of Sargon the Great. [10] The civilizations of Mesopotamia placed a great value on the written word. [10]

Built along the banks of the Euphrates River(in centre Mesopotamia) was Babylon. [3] Every region of Mesopotamia had some form of these same gods. [10] Babylon’s primal god was Marduk, he is one of the most complex gods in Mesopotamia, and not much is known about him except that he became leader of the gods. [3] An/Anu was the most powerful god since the beginning of Mesopotamia and was the lord of the gods. [3]

Clothing in Mesopotamia, like everything else, was dictated by, and reflected, one's social standing. [10] The chief grain crop in Mesopotamia was barley, and so it is no wonder that they were the first to invent beer. [10] Images throughout Mesopotamia attest to the people's great love of music and Bertman writes, "So great, in fact, was a queen of Ur's love of music, she could not bear the thought of being in the afterworld without it; so, with the help of a sleeping potion in the tomb, she took her royal musicians with her into the beyond" (295). [10] Human beings have never been very different, in both good and bad ways, than we are today and the basic needs and desires, as well as the daily lives, of the people of ancient Mesopotamia adhere to a pattern that is easily recognizable. [10] While rural life was physically more demanding, people of the countryside in ancient Mesopotamia had good lives. [12] In ancient Mesopotamia, the meaning of life was for one to live in concert with the gods. [10]

Houses: The materials used to build a Mesopotamian house were the same as those used today: sun-baked brick made of mud mixed with straw, mud plaster and wooden doors. [17] People built their houses with the materials they could find easily, like adobe, brick and a little bit of stone. [18] They also dried the brick in a kiln which was faster with stronger bricks. most houses were dome shaped. most houses shared walls, like town houses do today. [19] The poor lived in smaller houses with smaller court yards. there are a lot of artifacts like bowls and stuff hanging on the walls Dome houses Flat houses when it was to hot out they slept on the roofs to keep cool. [19] The larger houses had walls or grape arbors to protect from the sun or to add privacy. who lived in which house? The more wealthy people lived in larger homes, and the poor people lived in small homes. [19] Dense villages of closely-packed mud huts dotted this countryside, and every now and then the large courtyard-style house of a wealthy landowner. [17] The ancient design of Harran's houses is still used and has not been changed for at least 3 years. [18] The remains of such structures have long since perished, but carvings depict them, and many people in modern Iraq live in similar houses. [17] Most large houses, whether in town or country, were built around a courtyard. [17] Another characteristic of the Harran conical house is that it can be built very quickly. [18] Scribes and accountants were needed to keep track of what was being brought into and sent out of the temple store houses. [17] Bonds of kinship and dependence extended beyond individual houses, and served as an integrating mechanism within cities. [4] The historic simplicity of the Old Stone House will make you forget technology as melancholy for a simpler time creeps into your spirit.

[18]

[17] "Mesopotamia" is a Greek word meaning, "Land between the Rivers". [17] These rivers rise in mountain ranges to the north before flowing through Mesopotamia to the sea.
