Traditional Architecture : Timeless Building for the Twenty-First Century Hardback
A comprehensive overview of current trends in classicist and vernacular architecture.
This book presents 130 projects that reconsider what it means to practice as a traditional architect in the twenty-first century, including a substantial body of work from non-Western countries as well as work by contemporary masters of classical design such as Robert A.
M. Stern, Allan Greenberg, Andrï¿½s Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, and Quinlan and Francis Terry.
The projects assembled here highlight the awareness of a sustainable localism and the continuity of traditional building crafts on a global scale and reveal the resilience and originality of traditional building cultures despite the enormous economic and cultural pressures of contemporary development.
This is an optimistic vision of a new breed of traditional architects who endeavor to enrich the future while honoring the past.
