The primitive hut had been standard in architectural theory since Vitruvius. Marc-Antoine (Abbe) Laugier brought the idea to life with an image of the hut as the frontispiece for the second edition of Laugier's Essay on Architecture (1755).
It was sought to be the ideal principle for architecture or any structure at the time. Laugier believed it was the standard form which all architecture embodied.
Frank Lloyd Wright is believed to have used the idea of the primitive hut heavily in many of his designs. A design with this in mind is characterized with an emphasized hearth, roof, and foundation.
