About this title


In Vernacular Buildings Allen Noble extends the global survey contained of his earlier successful Traditional Buildings, to cover vernacular buildings and dwellings around the world. In a truly comprehensive account he ranges from the fazenda of the pioneer Brazilian settlers, the Masai dwellings of Tanzania and the gothic houses of Shanghai, to Virginia Hall and Parlor houses, the Spirit houses of Thailand, the thatched dwellings of the Eifel region of Germany and the three- decker houses of New York. Acknowledging the value of archival research the author is also a firmly convinced of the importance of field observation and the book is extensively illustrated with photographs from his own personal collection. With a comprehensive bibliography and incorporating new material from cultural geographers, historians, folklorists and anthropologists, Vernacular Buildings will be welcomed by specialist and enthusiasts alike.
