This paper explores some natural, technological and mythological elements of the mud and mudbrick architectures in the ancient Mesopotamia through the lens of the Near East Archaeology and Art History. Looking at the relevance of the modern Bio-architecture as a project for an eco-compatible human style life, the author aims to draw a portrait of some Mesopotamian concepts starting from the Sumerian and Akkadian building traditions and – at the same time – aims to emphasize the historical actuality of their deep cognitive habitus.
