With centuries of tradition as inspiration, contemporary architects are now realizing courtyard living afresh. This lavish survey of 25 residences across the Asia-Pacific region features homes from Australia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, India, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. 0Structured by courtyard function, the book consists of five chapters - on privacy; social spaces; sightlines; air, light and shade; and blurring boundaries - that are richly illustrated with photography as well as architectural illustrations showing the position of the courtyard within the floor plan. 0Showcasing the unique lifestyle opportunities afforded by contemporary courtyard design, this is an inspirational resource for anyone interested in indoor-outdoor living."@en ;
