Description

Focusing on human settlements whose origins depend upon rivers, this book asks, what may be identified as common cultural traits to such settlements? It explores the relationship between architecture and rivers at a number of scales, from the geographical/topographical, through the urban/infrastructural, down to that of the individual building or space. Including contributions from an international range of scholars, it examines the interface between terrain and water through the techniques and cultures of landscape, urban, architectural and material history and design, and through cross-cultural studies in art, literature, and social and cultural history. Deliberately wide-ranging, the book provides a specific focus on the architecture of the river, understood in its widest sense. Includes 100 black and white images.
