This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Thailand's tropical climate and Buddhist philosophies greatly influence the nation s architecture. Its architectural culture is also deeply influenced by countries such as China, India, and other Southeast Asian nations. While Thailand is influenced and has been absorbing the cultural nutrition of these nations, it has also been doing some innovative work, forming its own unique cultural style. This book showcases numerous projects that combine the beauty of the countries ubiquitous tropical forests with extraordinary national symbols that are becoming increasingly popular over the years. The Thai style has gained significant recognition by architects and designers worldwide. The authors show how both authenticity and innovation can combine to work in contemporary design. In the words of the author, "Authenticity is what makes the difference, and understanding and drawing inspiration from the past is what can give Thai heritage design new life. Moreover, traditional Thai architecture sufficiently embodies human-oriented and environmentally friendly notions, demonstrating the natural, unsophisticated, delicate and harmonious characteristics in architectural details."
