Yale University Press, 2000 - Architecture - 256 pages
The sequel to Traditional Buildings of Britain traces the origins and development of traditional buildings by going inside the houses and revealing from their plans how they evolved from basic accommodation to homes giving comfort and privacy. The book shows how local traditional materials--earth, timber, stone, brick--were used in the construction of the buildings.
