Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The work of architect Geoffrey Bawa achieved a unique fusion of vernacular style, modern construction, and the tropical landscape of Sri Lanka. Although his architectural work and its influence have been well documented, less attention has been paid to his work on gardens. His most famous garden is the one he created for himself at his estate, Lunuganga, and it is matched only by the nearby garden of his brother, Bevis, who was also an architect and designer.

Synopsis:

Richard Townsend gives the complete history of the Aztec civilization"s rise from humble nomads to empire builders.

Synopsis:

Within a hundred years, the Aztecs established the largest empire in Mesoamerican history, and at Tenochtitlan built a vast, shimmering city in a lake, a Venice of the New World. The book ends with a dramatic narrative of the Spanish conquest, as seen from the Aztec viewpoint.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 224-228) and index.

About the Author

Richard F. Townsend, a noted expert on pre-Columbian culture, is Curator of the Department of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas at the Art Institute of Chicago. He has conducted extensive research at Aztec sites.
