"How very fine it is to leaf through a 176-page book on architecture -- from bailiwicks to zomes -- and find no palaces, no pyramids or temples, no cathedrals, skyscrapers, Kremlins, or Pentagons in sight... instead, a book of homes, habitations for human beings in all their infinite variety." -- Edward Abbey"Shelter is a must not only for those actively engaged in house building, but for everyone who understands that lifestyle begins at home -- that we are, after all, where we live." -- Rolling Stone"Shelter is lavishly illustrated, containing over 1000 photographs, numerous drawings, and 250,000 words of text concerned with basic shelters from all over the world." -- San Francisco Chronicle"It's time to educate the architects. To that extent this book on shakes and wattle and daub is the most revolutionary architecture book around..."-- Architecture In Australia"A piece of environmental drama."-- Building Design, Lloyd Kahn has managed to pull together a stunning catalog of the phenomenon of human shelter through history, across cultures and climates from around the world. Yurts and huts and tree houses and cathedrals of stone. This is an eye-opener for anyone considering building their own home, or anyone just interested in human inventiveness and creativity. With over 1000 photos and drawings of cave houses, communal huts, wooden shacks, tents, domes, towers and holes in the ground, you'll be amazed at all the different ways people have tried to keep the rain off their heads and the wolves outside!
