    This chapter discusses the contributions of the volume in terms of the problem of ‘house as object’. It argues for an archaeological architecture that undoes the ‘house as object’ in three important ways—there is an approach that extends architectural history into material culture studies, another that explores the dimensions of architectural space as a part of landscape, and a final one that understands the value of allowing time and use to add meaning to architecture.
