Modern architecture in Ramaxia consists of Gashcolic, Rydokular, and Uzschical, design. Gashcolic buildings resemble unaroused or aroused and blooming, gashcol (vaginal folds). Uzchical elements resemble frontal swell, or the mounds of the breasts and buttocks, while Rydocular buildings, like the Cloister in Utama, emulate the swollen rydok (clitoris). Principal elements of each style feature lopsided angles (like the disjointed layers of a fleshy Zaxir), external water features, and the webbing of muscle.
The first settlements borrowed heavily from Femati designs found in the Femaki’xirpaxul. The femmar carved the first residence’s from natural rock formations; there were two types of stylistic models: jagged crustacean-like elements, or uneven smooth-as-ice, flatness. Crude rock-faced abodes gave way to stand-alone structures with the production of tharspin, and eventual melting of dirtoxian sands, to make glass. Some of the first structures remain in modern Ramaxia, confined to the oldest neighborhoods, or outside the domes, in the subterranean coasts abandoned after the construction of the domes.
Before the production of the Ramax Generation, the original subjects lived with their castes, in dormitory-style cave-structures. The concept of Citizenry-Housing was born on the Artery and has changed throughout the generations with core design elements remaining standard: bedrock and stone, glass walls that resemble ice, moving water features, and the use of nocturnal plant life.
When the First Ramaxian Gen came of age, the newly domed cities contained residential habitats, designed with caste-specific style preferences. The Second Ramaxian Gen with time to prepare for donations developed Pod-Housing; larger residences where bonded citizens came together to live and raise their donations. Modern Ramaxian residences reflect the styles created in the era of the Fifth Ramaxian Gen when urban and rural planning was at its height. After the Sister-Suicides, housing was plentiful, and new construction ceased due to large swathes of the domes containing empty pre-built sectors. As the Eleventh Ramaxian Gen enter the citizenry, redesign of these pre existing sectors has seen a renaissance, with aesthetics borrowed from all eras.
