This paper seeks to analyse the logical structure of Gottfried Semper's "The Four Elements of Architecture" , to explicate his thought of "polychromy" and remarkable ideas of his new theory "four elements of architecture".

After this new theory, he searched toward the "beginnings" of architecture to grasp at "four elements" hearth, mound, enclosure, and roof. He tried to describe architectural histories in terms of modifications of the four elements, because he thought that relations of the four elements could not be fixed, rather that each element could metamorphose independently according to conditions of racial characteristics, climates, topographies, etc.

Strictly following this theory, the "polychroay" as wall finishing should be just a kind of spatial "enclosure" as one of "four elements of architecture", and the theme "polychromy", therefore, should be subsumed by the theme "four elements of architecture".

Published in , it is an attempt to explain the origins of architecture through the lens of anthropology. The book divides architecture into four distinct elements: the hearth, the roof, the enclosure and the mound. The first sign of settlement and rest after the hunt, the battle, and wandering in the desert is today, as when the first men lost paradise, the setting up of the fireplace and the lighting of the reviving, warming, and food preparing flame. Around the hearth the first groups formed: around the hearth the first groups assembled; around it the first alliances formed; around it the first rude religious concepts were put into the customs of a cult Throughout all phases of society the hearth formed that sacred focus around which took order and shape.
