Description: Traditions in Architecture introduces readers to the architectural achievements of diverse cultures outside the Euroamerican tradition. Unlike traditional chronological surveys of architectural history, this volume is arranged thematically. It is divided into five major sections, each of which addresses specific topics fundamental to all societies. This unique, one-volume study begins with a discussion of multiplicity and continuity in tradition. It continues with the construction of water supply, shelter, and food; the purposes of architecture; planning and design; and cultural values. In order to provide a basic understanding of the cultural heritage defining these diverse groups, both vernacular and monumental works are discussed. Traditions in Architecture is enhanced by over 200 photographs, maps, and charts as well as a glossary and full bibliography.
