Looks at the types and forms of vernacular houses around the world. It documents the form of traditional buildings that are self-built by their owner-occupiers or built by members of a community, recording the means of construction and decoration of the house in many different cultures. Not just a reference work on domestic buildings but also a useful survey for understanding how different communities cope with issues of climate, migration, mass development, and symbolic and cultural meaning in architecture.
