Description - North Carolina Architecture by Tim Buchman

North Carolina history through the built world Now in a convenient new format, this portable edition of the award-winning, lavishly illustrated history presents the wide range of North Carolina's architectural heritage, from colonial times to the beginning of World War II. North Carolina Architecture, Portable Edition 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. Retaining all of the text of the original edition as well as hundreds of halftones by master photographer Tim Buchman, the portable edition of North Carolina Architecture is the perfect glove-compartment or armchair companion. 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.
