The Aegean Crucible: Tracing Vernacular Architecture in Post-Byzantine Centuries
This book describes buildings designed by untrained builders on the Aegean archipelago from the 13C to the present. The author looks at relationships and balances between the vernacular buildings and the landscape, between the islanders' limited means and their pressing need for defensible space, or between the vernacular and the formal in architecture.
