Thames and Hudson has published a compact edition of architect and scientist Sandra Piesik’s 2017 book, Habitat: Vernacular Architecture for a Changing Climate. The book demonstrates how local buildings have withstood the test of time and explores lessons for the future.
It is organised by climate zones (tropical, dry, temperate, continental, polar) and explores regions within each zone to demonstrate how buildings styles have evolved according to climatic conditions and vegetation. The appendix features case studies of contemporary vernacular architecture from around the world. Thames and Hudson
