The Architecture of Yemen: From Yafi to Hadramut - Salma Samar Damluji - Hardback (600 illustrations, 304 pages, 328 x 248 mm) - Laurence King Publishing

Until the early 1990s the southern and eastern towns of Yemen were extremely difficult to reach. The result of nearly two decades of research, this is the first book to offer an in-depth investigation into the characteristic architecture of the region. The author's first-hand research provides detailed insights into building techniques and methods that, though still practised, are little known outside the area. Refreshingly, the book moves out of the more familiar major cities into the hinterlands and explores regions that could be said to be the last strongholds of traditional Arab architecture. The author was allowed to visit locations and sites that had previously been closed to architectural historians. As a result of this privileged access, the text and images combine to convey unique insights and viewpoints - those of the master builders and house owners who create and inhabit the buildings.

 

Salma Samar Damluji is an architect and architectural consultant. She has published several books, including The Architecture of Oman (1998) and The Architecture of the United Arab Emirates (2006), and has curated a number of exhibitions in London.
