    Many houses in Iceland are built into mounds of earth. This practice provides thermal insulation from severe weather and uses few wood resources, which are scarce on the island. Houses in Vietnam are open structures that are made with bamboo, which is plentiful. The warm climate requires no thermal insulation.
