Abstract: Across history of human civilization, ecological factors motivated people of different periods in shaping their settlement strategy. From the very commencement of people’s settlement-practice, housing practice became the symbol of protection and safety for human existence. Whenever people think of housing construction, ecological factors have been given the principal contemplation to cope with the hostile natural calamities and unusual environmental behaviour. People around the world still maintain and practice this trend historical, pragmatic and situational in housing construction. Indigenous people across the world have hereditarily been exercising this sort of housing technology for years that includes ecological and environmental reflection. However, even modern architectural design embodies the discourse of ‘environmentally-sound’ in construction process. With the increased economic dimension of human life, economic factors are also reflected in the domain of housing technology that includes cost-effectiveness and sustainability, etc. The paper explores one of such traditional housing technologies, mud-made housing technology bring widely practiced in different parts of Bangladesh. It explores the state and architecture, ecological and economic reasoning of the mud-made housing technology of Bangladesh.
