Mediterranean Villages: An Architectural Journey

Front Cover
Images Publishing, 2004 - Architecture - 314 pages
This new book celebrates village architecture in four Mediterranean regions: the hilltowns of central Italy, the Aegean islands of Greece, the Dalmatian coast, and the Andalusian region of southern Spain. This extensive collection of drawings, photographs, paintings, and maps is tightly formatted and presented in a cohesive and holistic manner. The authors, noted San Francisco architects, have studied, analysed, and documented villages where light, form, and movement go beyond beauty to places that can move our souls.
That Steven and Cathi House have been able to capture the essence of Mediterranean architecture is a significant achievement. Their drawings and photographs trigger memories for those who have travelled the Mediterranean and offer insight for those who have not.
