Under the Sun: Desert Architecture and Style

By Suzi Moore; Terrence Moore

Boston & New York: Bulfinch Press, 1995. As New copy in an As New dust jacket. 248pp including source guide and bibliography. "Under the Sun" captures the beautiful traditions of desert living through a unique tour of desert architecture and interiors - from North Africa and Spain to Mexico and the American Soutwest. Illustrated with nearly three hundred striking color photographs, the book celebrates the architectural styles of some of the world's most arid regions. Exploring how the harsh realities of desert life have shaped desert buildings over the centuries and continents, the authors give us detailed portraits of thirty-eight notable sites. Among these sites are a mosque in Tunisia, a kasbah in Morocco, a Spanish hill town, a Native American pueblo, a historic limestone ranch in Texas, a self-sufficient New Mexico house made from tires, a sun-drenched adobe dream house in Arizona, and a dazzling, contemporary house in California. Throughout, spectacular images of exteriors, interiors, patios, and gardens - from the contemplative quiet of the Alhambra in Granada to sophisticated open-air living rooms in California - show how the best desert buildings are the ones that interact harmoniously with the natural environment. . 1st. Hardcover. As New/As New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Architecture.
