The Lhasa House : Typology of an Endangered Species, Hardback Book

The Lhasa House : Typology of an Endangered Species Hardback


This book looks at a particular type of indigenous architecture that has developed in the Tibetan capital Lhasa.

The focus is not on the relatively well documented monastic architecture, but rather on the vernacular residential architecture in the form of the historic Lhasa Town House, as it was built and lived in from the mid-17th to mid-20th century.

The book defines the Lhasa House as a distinct variety of traditional Tibetan architecture by providing a technical analysis and discussing the cultural framework and the development of this endangered typology.
