American colonial : Puritan simplicity to Georgian grace by Wendell D Garrett( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and German and held by 594 libraries worldwide
The American colonial design period moves from the late twilight of medievalism through traditional building methods to the sophisticated pattern-book formality of the Age of Enlightenment, with its rules of taste and insistence on order and symmetry. While early structures were largely derived from English prototypes, American buildings soon evidenced intense regionalism, reflecting local tastes and preferences; those tastes were in some cases academic and high style, and in others vernacular and of folk origin. The variety and dynamism in American domestic architecture in the colonial period are indicative of the pluralism of American society. Added to these factors of provincialism, regionalism, and academic tastes are the elements of social, cultural, economic, and technical history affecting American architecture. From the earliest period of simple heavy timber framing to the later period of elegant brick and stone, from wedding chests to Chippendale chairs, authentic colonial architecture and interiors are explored in more than two hundred color photographs that capture the essence of the colonial kitchen, parlor, bedchamber, and workshop. The principal photography is by Paul Rocheleau, who brings his expertise in architectural photography and sensitivity to the design period to this ultimate survey of American colonial

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 572 libraries worldwide
"This lavishly illustrated history of the Spanish missions in North America traces for the first time the distinctive influences on their architecture. In these churches Arab and Catholic traditions combined to infuse a unique style into the New World. From Sonora in northern Mexico to the lands of the Apache in Arizona, from New Mexico to San Antonio, Texas, along the coast of California and on the shores of La Florida, the friars left their stamp on the missions, captured here in brilliant scope and detail. With stunning photographs taken exclusively for this book, here is a glorious visual document of the missions of North America and a fascinating account of how they changed the landscape of the American South and West."--Amazon
Adobe : building and living with earth by Orlando Romero( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 570 libraries worldwide
"The use of earth as a building material is as old as civilization. For the twentieth-century American, the process is most familiar in the sun-dried brick called adobe and the architectural style characteristic of the desert Southwest and the mission buildings of California." "Here, in more than two hundred pictures and a lucid, informed text, is the story of building and living with earth - from North and West Africa to the Iberian Peninsula, from the centuries-old Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe to the modern homes of the wealthy in the hills near Taos." "Essential to the story of adobe is the experience of construction itself, which is a communal act - families and friends engaged in the making of bricks and the raising of walls and rafters (called vigas), and the unique skill of applying the protective and beautifying plaster, a task often left to the talented women known as enjaradoras." "Adobe describes the wide variety of earthen architecture: the stark grandeur of the Taos pueblo; light-filled artists' studios; the typical hacienda with its living spaces surrounding a sunlit courtyard; and new houses designed to maintain a tradition yet providing abundant comfort and pleasure."--Jacket
