Historic Architecture in the Caribbean Islands
"For those who are explorers and are curious to know more about the culture of the Caribbean, this book is a useful guide to the significant structures on each island."--Thomas S. Marvel, architect, Puerto Rico
"A comprehensive, panoramic vision of architecture in this important geographic region."--Efrain E. Pérez-Chanis, architect and former dean, School of Architecture, University of Puerto Rico
In this abundantly illustrated book, Edward Crain records the rich architectural heritage of the sixteen Caribbean islands. Hundreds of black-and-white and color photographs, most taken by the author, show in detail structures with arresting visual appeal and lasting historic value.
Edward E. Crain works as an architectural educator. When he retired as professor of architecture at the University of Florida, he served as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer in Jamaica, where he helped set up the Caribbean School of Architecture. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects.
