Synopsis: Covering ancient Himalayan architecture, recent projects in restoration and new directions in building and crafts, the photographer and author demonstrate the tremendous vitality, range, and potential of Himalayan forms and designs, Himalayan Style contains a treasury of images, and with Burkert's eloquent prose, this book engages readers both familiar and new to the Himalayas. Himalayan Style begins by focusing on historic structures in Bhutan, India, Nepal, and Tibet that have been renovated and often adapted for new purposes. Style is also illustrated in expressions of spiritual belief, from the distinctive shapes of stupas to offerings of flowers and tikka powder. The homes and furnishings of this region exhibit a variety of construction methods, materials, and decorative detail. Contemporary lodges for travellers in the region are also highlighted. This vibrant book celebrates creative ways of living and working in the Kathmandu Valley. Here, designers and craftsmen work together, creating innovative homes and crafts utilising local materials and techniques. Renowned for his Himalayan photography, Thomas Kelly treats us to a personal collection of images ranging in focus from the small detail of a Tibetan tea table, to a vast mountain landscape dotted with stupas. Himalayan Style offers a fresh look at the man-made beauty in the Himalayas, and so deepens one's understanding and appreciation of this powerfully beautiful region.
Product Description: Photographer Thomas L. Kelly and author Claire Burkert present a journey through the elements of Himalayan style focusing on the regions of Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, and India. The spirit of the place is portrayed in the stupas, chaityas, and prayer walls and flags. The forms of sacred space are represented in the dzongs, monasteries and temples. The style of priests, kings, and common man are represented in the dwellings that house them. The journey concludes with visions of the new Himalayan design. In Himalayan Style: Shelters and Sanctuaries, photographer Thomas L. Kelly and author Claire Burkert present exquisite examples of vernacular architecture, sacred spaces and interiors found in Tibet, India, Bhutan and Nepal. Unique are chapters on contemporary style, which cover museums, gardens, private homes and fine crafts.
