CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A detailed, profusely illustrated survey of Thai architecture with its many
styles and forms.
Thailand's architecture comes alive in this magnificently illustrated volume,
the most comprehensive book on the subject yet published, exploring every genre
from houses and farm huts to temples, palaces, and modern buildings. It is the
first major book to focus on the myriad elements that make Thai architecture so
rich in beauty and meaning. With hundreds of images by leading photographers,
this is an accessible, inspirational source book for designers, architects, and
everyone interested in Southeast Asian culture.
The book is a collaboration between leading architect Nithi Sthapitanonda, who
did the drawings, photographs, and research support, and writer Brian Mertens,
who did the writing, main research, and many photos. 800+ illustrations in
color and black and white.
