9780804841207: The Living House: An Anthropology of Architecture in South-East Asia

The Living House is a pioneering work by respected anthropologist Roxana Waterson that has become a classic in its field. It is first book of its kind to present a detailed picture of houses within the complex social and symbolic fabric of indigenous South-East Asian peoples.

The main focus of the book is on Indonesia, but in tracing historical links between architectural forms across the region, it reveals a much wider field of inquiry—covering all of the Austronesian peoples and cultures extending as far afield as Madagascar, Japan and the Pacific islands to New Zealand and Hawaii. As it probes the centrally significant role of houses within South-East Asian social systems, The Living House reveals new insights into the kinship systems, gender symbolism and cosmological principles of the peoples who build them, ultimately uncovering fundamental themes concerning the concepts of life force and life processes inherent in all of these cultures.

A vivid picture is produced of how people shape buildings and buildings shape people—how rules about layout and spatial usage impact social relationships. The book concludes with a consideration of present-day changes affecting the fates of indigenous cultures and architectures throughout the region. This book will be of tremendous interest to architects and historians, and anyone interested in the indigenous art and cultures of South-East Asia.

Descrizione libro Tuttle Publishing. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, The Living House: An Anthropology of Architecture in South-East Asia, Roxana Waterson, "The Living House", is a pioneering title that has become a classic. It draws on many sources of information, from architects and anthropologists, as well as the author's own first-hand research. The main focus of the book is Indonesia, but the tracing of historical links between architectural forms reveals a much wider field of enquiry, closely related to the distribution of Austronesian languages and cultures, and extending as far as Madagascar, Japan and Oceania. As it probes into the centrally significant role of houses within South-East Asian social systems, "The Living House" reveals new insights into kinship systems, gender symbolism and cosmological ideas, ultimately uncovering basic themes concerning the idea of life and life processes themselves. These themes run like linking threads throughout the Austronesian world, constantly recurring in new transformations across time and space. A vivid picture is produced of how people shape buildings and buildings shape people, as rules about layout and uses of space themselves have an impact on social relationships. The book concludes with a consideration of some present day process of change as these affect the fate of indigenous architectures. Although intended first and foremost as a work of anthropology, "The Living House" will also appeal to architects, scholars specializing in South-East Asia and the interested general reader.
