Independent Publishe, 2005 - Architecture - 303 pages
The innovative architectural styles that have emerged from the various climates of the Colombian landscape are presented through this collection of insightful essays and spectacular complementary photography. Over 300 locations in Colombia fill the three sections based on climate zones: hot weather, warm weather, and cold weather. As the creativity of traditional and emerging Colombian architects is revealed, so too is the stunning landscape of the country whose varying climate and indigenous materials -- such as guadua, a local bamboo -- have influenced Colombian architectural form and content, respectively. ALSO AVAILABLE IN SPANISH -- CASA DE RECREO EN COLOMBIA (9588156688/9789588156682).
