This remarkable new book celebrates village architecture in four Mediterranean regions - the hilltowns of central Italy, the Aegean islands of Greece, the Dalmatian coast, and the Andalucian region of southern Spain. It showcases a collection of drawings, photographs, paintings and maps presented in a cohesive and holistic manner. The authors, noted San Francisco architects, have studied, analysed and documented villages where light, form and movement go beyond beauty to a place that can move our souls. That Steven and Cathi House have been able to capture the essence of Mediterranean architecture is a significant achievement. Their drawings and photographs trigger memories for those who have travelled the Mediterranean and offer insight for those who have not. Mediterranean Villages: An Architectural Journey is a handsome, meaningful record and a thought interpretation of a classical theme.
