Although the A-Frame looks like a modern invention, they've been around for a long time. The first A-frame houses were built by ancient European, Asia and African cultures. They were simple and practical, using local materials and adapting to different climates.

The A-frame design became popular in the 1950s thanks to an architect named Andrew Geller. He designed many A-frame houses on the East Coast of the US, like the Elizabeth Reese House and the Pearlroth House. They were affordable, easy to build and perfect for vacation homes.

The A-frame design also had a spiritual meaning for some people. In 1961, Antonin Raymond, a Czech-born American architect, designed the Holy Cross Anglican Church in Tokyo, Japan. He used the A-frame shape to symbolize "hands at prayer". The church still stands today and is a beautiful example of modern architecture.
