Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
I enjoy this book every time I open it. The photos are well done, depicting typical and extraordinary homes of the Colombian countryside. The text describes the historical design origins as well as the impact of the diverse geography of the various regions, both of which play a critical part in the design and concept of these homes. A must for admirers of Spanish influenced architecture, as well as lovers of South American culture.
