Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This award-winning, lavishly illustrated history displays the wide range of North Carolina's architectural heritage, from colonial times to the beginning of World War II. North Carolina Architecture addresses the state's grand public and private buildings that have become familiar landmarks, but it also focuses on the quieter beauty of more common structures: farmhouses, barns, urban dwellings, log houses, mills, factories, and churches. These buildings, like the people who created them and who have used them, are central to the character of North Carolina.

Now in a convenient new format, this portable edition of North Carolina Architecture retains all of the text of the original edition as well as hundreds of halftones by master photographer Tim Buchman. Catherine Bishir's narrative analyzes construction and design techniques and locates the structures in their cultural, political, and historical contexts. This extraordinary history of North Carolina's built world presents a unique and valuable portrait of the state.

Synopsis:

Praised as a model for state architectural histories, North Carolina Architecture is now available in a portable standard trim size, with the full text and 85% of the photographs of the original coffee table edition. Bishir's award-winning narrative tells the history of the state through its grand public and private buildings as well as its farmhouses, barns, log houses, mills, factories, and churches.
