Detailed description

Bringing together the world's leading experts in vernacular architecture, this once-in-a-generation publication examines how local buildings have endured the test of time and offer crucial lessons for the future. The core of the book is organized by climate zone, from desert to tropical, temperate to arctic. Within each section, buildings are presented regionally, illustrating how local climatic conditions and vegetation influence the evolution of architectural styles.

This central portion is flanked by a series of essays exploring economic and anthropological aspects, while the reference section provides information on materials science and engineering, including how buildings have been adapted to withstand natural disasters. With the growing challenge of climate change, there has never been a more critical time to understand how to optimize the use of local natural resources and create buildings that do not rely on depleting our planet or transporting materials across the globe. This book shows us how.

Winner of the Prix des libraires de livres d'art 2017.

Number of pages 600 Format 294 x 370 x 53
