Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847831612, Hardcover)

This is the definitive survey of domestic living in the tropics—from traditional forms to the latest in contemporary design—with a particular emphasis on Asia and Oceania. The authoritative selection of lush images and the informative commentary by a noted design writer set this title apart from others on the subject. Featuring over 500 photographs, this book depicts the amazing richness of architectural and interior design styles found throughout the tropics. Rustic and luxurious, simple and ornate, historic and contemporary—the tropics contain startling visual and stylistic juxtapositions that all share an exotic quality and somehow work together to create harmonious, comfortable spaces for living. The styles featured here range from traditional bamboo stilt houses filled with simple charm to the most opulently decorated grand homes. One of the common denominators of all the tropical styles featured is how they blend seamlessly with the environment and attempt to create a harmonious balance between human needs and nature. However remote the location, all of the homes and interiors showcased are designed to respond and adapt to their natural settings. This book is the ultimate visual resource for the tropical lifestyle, and anyone who views these images will be inspired to view their own surroundings with fresh eyes.
