Summary note
"Vernacular architecture comprises the dwellings and all other buildings of the people. Related to their environmental contexts and available resources, vernacular buildings are customarily made utilizing traditional technologies, to meet specific needs, accommodating the values, economies and ways of living of the cultures that produce them." "Augmenting the Encyclopedia of Vernacular Architecture of the World, the Atlas of Vernacular Architecture of the World constitutes a unique and unparalleled resource for anyone involved in the growing field of vernacular architecture studies, including architects, geographers, art historians, planners, folklorists, conservationists, builders, and anthropologists. It will be of interest and of use to all those working in the fields of heritage conservation, architecture, regeneration, energy efficient building, resources management, development and sustainability."--Jacket.
