Yangon Echoes: Inside Heritage Homes, Paperback / softback Book

Yangon Echoes: Inside Heritage Homes Paperback / softback


Yangon Echoes is a popular history of buildings used as homes in Burma's bustling, former capital, charting social space and urban folklore and linking past to present via living memories.

This anthology records everyday life through domestic connections to old places and explores the present day significance of Yangon's rich inheritance of built form.

Our storytellers speak of joy and tragedy, simple pleasures and aching issues.

They share thoughts and feelings of living through Yangon's emergence from decades of stagnation to engagement with a rapidly spinning world.

Told with courage and charm, these informal stories of home offer insight into what has happened and is happening to the city.
