Abstract:

"Overview Many of the stunning natural landscapes that bless tropical areas of Asia are now transformed into major tourist destinations, as showcased in this enticing volume. Combining landscape design and building concepts of simple materials, consummate craftsmanship, and moods of humor, surprise, and drama, the works are the product of an intense collaboration between the landscaper architects, Bensley Design Studios, and Bunnag Architects, both firms based in Bangkok. As shown in lavish photo spreads, each project was guided by a reverence for pristine sites, tropical climate, and rich cultural heritage. The book also documents techniques employed by both practices in bringing these tropical paradises from dream to reality."--Publishers description.
