CONTEMPORARY VERNACULAR DESIGN: HOW BRITISH HOUSING CAN REDISCOVER ITS SOUL Clare Nash. RIBA Publishing, Royal Institute of British Architects, London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Taylor & Francis Group, New York. 224 pp. with 197 ills. (178 col.). 25 x 19 cm. ISBN 9781859465844 In English.
Publisher's description: This book presents 25 international housing schemes that draw on traditional vernacular principles whilst taking into account modern day materials, methods and financial or energy requirements. The aim is to show how, despite mass housing needs, we can design quality modern schemes that 'fit' their surroundings and generate a sense of place, community and regional identity -- rather than the poor quality, identikit housing currently seen wherever you are in the UK.
