Description
This volume, the third in Select's popular House books by Robert Powell, illustrates houses in Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka that reinterpret the traditional in the context of modern living in these overcrowded cities. Powell demonstrates how architects attempt to resolve the problems of space constraints, noise and air pollution.
