Dwellings is an essencial record of domestic buildings by indigenous group that still exist and thrive in the world today, as well as others that are sadly under threat or disappearing. It is also a useful survey for understanding how different communities cope with issues that affect everyone who builds, eg. climate, migration, as well as symbolic or cultural meaning in architecture. Since its first publication in 1987 this book has been the classic reference to the world's informal domestic architecture. This new book takes into account further scholarship in the field and also acknowledges theoretical developments in the areas of cultural geography. Each narrative chapter is highly illustrated with drawings and photographs.
