وصف كتب مصر
Until the early 1990s the southern and eastern towns of Yemen were extremely
difficult to access. The result of nearly two decades of research, this is the
first book to offer an in-depth investigation into the characteristic
architecture of the region. The author's first hand research provides detailed
insights into building techniques and methods, though still practiced, are
little known outside the area.
Refreshingly, the book moves out of the more familiar major cities into the
hinterlands and explores regions that could be said to be the last strongholds
of traditional Arab architecture. The author was allowed to visit locations and
sites that had previously been closed to architectural historians. As a result
of this privileged access, the text and images combine to convey unique
insights and viewpoints: those of the master builders and house owners who
actually create and inhabit the buildings.
