Summary
"This survey of Afghanistan's indigenous domestic architecture, carried out in 1974-1976 prior to the Soviet invasion, is the most comprehensive record of Afghan dwelling types currently available. The book consists of two major parts. The first is a general atlas of Afghan nomdic and sedentary domestic structures, focusing particularly on dwellings. The authors provide detailed drawings and measurements of each type of tent or permanent dwelling, along iwth maps to indicate its area of use. In addition to the environmental factors that have influenced these designs, they discusss how the cultural heritage of the inhabitants has also shaped the dwellings they construct. The second part of the atlas is a comparative architectural study of four different types of villages in the Kabul River basin."--Publisher's description
