Riassunto: Contemporary Pacific style is a blend of the cultures from the many islands of the Pacific and colonial influences. This is an exploration of both the traditional architecture and design of the region and the styles that incorporate traditional concepts, including exotic hideaways that imaginatively combine cool and colourful Pacific style with sumptuous history. The trademarks of Pacific Island style - attractive and natural materials, practical environment-enhancing design, indoor-outdoor living - are being found more and more all over the world. All these elements are traditional in the Pacific for climatic, practical and cultural reasons. Covering Samoa, Niue, Tahiti, New Caledonia, Tonga, the Cook Islands, Fiji and the Solomon Islands, this volume looks at design and colour in the environment, use of local materials and techniques, traditional houses, painting and stencilling techniques, traditional colonial and modern houses, and other features such as the famous colour-code buses of Western Samoa.
L'autore: Glenn Jowitt has taken Pacific Island photographs for many books, magazines, and gallery exhibitions. Peter Shaw is Curator of the Fletcher Challenge Art Collection in Auckland, New Zealand.
