About This Book

Asian art specialist Brian Mertens and Thai architect Nithi Sthapitanonda have produced this book to explore and celebrate the elements and forms found in Thai architecture that makes it recognisably Thai. To illustrate these distinctive elements and forms, many examples are drawn from indigenous shelters, mansions, spirit houses, temples and palaces. This book also touches on the little-explored area of Islamic architecture in Thailand. Other topics covered include: foreign influences in Thai architecture; the adaptation of forms in modern Thai architecture; and temple and palace ornaments. Besides the impressive colour photographs, there is substantial explanatory text and some architectural drawings. This large and handsome volume is indexed and makes an excellent source book for architects, heritage conservationists and designers.
