Author(s): Salma Samar Damluji
This was the first book to offer an in-depth investigation into the characteristic architecture of Yemen. This new, revised edition includes drawings, documentation and information on the building and reconstruction projects carried out from 2008 to 2014 at locations in Hadrumat and Dawan. Moving beyond the major cities, Salma Samar Damluji explores the architecture of regions that could be said to be the last strongholds of traditional Arab architecture. With a wealth of insights from both the master builders and home owners, the book examines in detail building techniques and methods little known outside of Yemen.
