Ada Karmi-Melamede and Dan Price
Size: 11.22" X 9.25" / 28.5 X 23.5 cm
This landmark work about architecture in Mandatory Palestine explores not only the structural and functional aspects of its unique architecture, but also the relationships between values, place, and form that reflect the realities of local life as well as the ideological foundations and cultural aspirations of a new society.
Based on a vast collection of materials assembled over many years, the book’s lavish illustrations convey the striking aesthetic of the period, while documentary, analytical, and interpretive drawings suggest alternative readings of the buildings discussed.
"... provides an important model in which painstaking research allows theories and ideas to stand on solid foundations" (Ziva Sternhall, Haaretz)
