About This Book

In Cambodia from 1953-1970, there was a remarkable period of public and private construction and building under the leadership of King Norodom Sihanouk. Of the thousands of new buildings that came up across the country, many stand out for their high standard and unique style - a remarkable blend of new building techniques and traditional Khmer designs that marked a decisive break from French colonial architecture. The rise and fall of New Khmer Architecture over 17 years has no parallel in modern architecture history. This rich volume presents the constructional achievements of the period, together with accounts of the architects, planners and enterprises involved. Photographs, construction details and architectural information are given for each building or project, together with a note on its present state or usage. With bibliography, inventory list, glossary and index.
