More Description

Shelter is a unique record of houses and housing from around the world and throughout time. Author Charles Knevitt, a noted British architecture journalist, takes us on a remarkable journey from troglodyte villages around the Mediterranean to the elegant Regency terraces of John Nash in London; we visit the painted houses of South African tribes as well as resort developments in Europe and the United States. Twentieth-century architectural icons are also included, specifically Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Le Corbusier's Unite d'Habitation. The compelling photographs of the seventy-five featured shelters are accompanied by text describing the history, building materials, design, climate, topography, and construction methods of the various habitats. A brilliant visual and textual commentary on humankind's ingenuity in creating suitable and sensual places to live.
