Description

Balinese style villas and resorts are popping up everywhere--from Ibiza to St Barts to Singapore. But what is Balinese architecture? And why is it so popular today?

Traditional Balinese houses, temples and pavilions are designed to allow man to exist in harmony with the natural forces of the universe--reflecting core Balinese beliefs about man's place in relation to the cosmos, the gods, the ancestors, and the world around him. Innovative local and Western architects have been designing resorts and villas on Bali for decades, drawing their inspiration from these local traditions.

In this one-of-a-kind book, author Julian Davison provides a comprehensive guide to Balinese architectural forms, the Balinese belief system, the rituals associated with building, the materials and construction techniques, and the intricate ornamentation used. Over 100 watercolor illustrations and photographs provide a clear picture of the island's architecture as well as an eye-opening look at a culture and a people that have captivated the world's imagination.
