Villages and towns 8: Iberia
The eighth instalment of the revised ‘Villages and Towns’ series begins a journey through the Iberian Peninsula. Focusing on the heritage of vernacular architectures, it looks at how emphasis is placed on the landscape and climate, harmony among the community and local features, and issues of environmental preservation and natural lighting. Local houses of a certain region share the same underlying, invariable elements, which is the very reason for their achievement of diversity integration that is a rarity among today’s rapidly changing architectural trends. With texts by the late Spanish architect Fernando Higueras Díaz and photographs by Yukio Futagawa.
