Product description

Content

First published in 2007, The Architecture of Yemen was the first book to offer an in-depth investigation into the characteristic architecture of country and the the result of nearly two decades of research. This new, revised edition includes drawings, documentation and information on the building and reconstruction projects carried out from 2008 to 2014 at locations in Hadrumat and Dawan. Moving beyond the major cities, Salma Samar Damluji explores the architecture of regions that could be said to be the last strongholds of traditional Arab architecture.

The Architecture of Yemen and its Reconstruction features a wealth of insights from both the master builders and home owners and contains photographs and surveyed drawings of many locations that are now extremely difficult to visit. It also examines in detail building techniques and methods little known outside of Yemen and includes well-known UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well as remarkable buildings from less-visited areas.

Praise for The Architecture of Yemen: "Historians, planners and architects will find much useful detail in The Architecture of Yemen and the general reader much charm in the beguiling photos. In addition, those concerned by the rash of more recent and hasty development will find some hope for the inspiration of a new generation of master builders in Yemen and the Gulf." - Current World Archaeology
