Architecture In Palau

Architecture in Palau is a unique and diverse form of design; it blends traditional Pacific Island designs with modern architecture. Ancient building techniques, such as those used by the Palauans to construct their ancestral community houses, have been combined with more modern techniques, such as the use of reinforced concrete and steel frames. The result is a style of architecture that speaks to both traditional and contemporary tastes. Palauan buildings are often characterized by their large roofs and tall walls, which provide shelter from the tropical climate, as well as open air courtyards, giving the building a feeling of openness. The colors used are often vibrant and the use of traditional artwork is common, reflecting Palau's indigenous culture.
