Architecture of Bali: A Source Book of Traditional and Modern Forms

Front Cover
University of Hawai'i Press, 2002 - Architecture - 224 pages
This is at once a compendium for designers and an entertaining essay on the architecture of Asia's most glamorous tropical island by one of its foremost admirers. Landscape and architectural designer Made Wijaya draws on his photographic archives, compiled over the past thirty years, to present a visual study of Balinese architecture: its origins, elements, variations, and vagaries. The book opens with an overview of Balinese architecture and then looks at its basic elements--the walled courtyard and the pavilion. Further chapters examine building materials, ornamentation, and architectural hybrids resulting from other ethnic influences. Richly illustrated with hundreds of contemporary and archival photographs, this unusual book is for anyone interested in ethnic architecture and design.
