Abstract:
Oblique aerial view shows dwellings in the foreground, the National Palace behind, and a mountain range in the background. Many of the houses show a steeple-like pointed roof addition.

The steeple-like pointed roof addition features prominently in Haitian architecture. The addition served as a hood which funnelled hot air out of the house.
