Description Gathering Places de Barbara Walker:

Distinctive in form and detail, Balinese architecture celebrates the concept of gathering, from traditional vernacular architecture to modern homes and resorts. This book explores the features and elements that define Balinese architecture as an architecture made for gathering - pavilions, temples, palaces and village squares - and how these elements reflect the Balinese philosophies of adat (customary laws), budaya (customs) and agama (religion). Rich in meaning and symbolism, the architecture of Bali is about the convening of the family, the village, the gods, and most recently, tourists. Different from other books on Balinese architecture and interiors, this book seeks to explain the reasons behind the forms and the spatial and spiritual philosophy that is uniquely Balinese. "Gathering Places" is meant for more than just the coffee-table. It is informative and comprehensive, and yet personal and insightful as it celebrates the concept of gathering and its expression in the architecture of the 'island of the gods'. BARBARA WALKER currently runs Walker Designs - an architectural-interior design firm and travels to Bali on a regular basis. Her fascination with Bali and love for the people stems from a seven-year stay on the island. She now lives in Vermont and Florida. She is currently working on two books on indochine architecture and interiors. JAY GRAHAM began his career as a photographer in 1984 with a background in design and construction. Since then he has served clients in the advertising, architectural, editorial and travel industries, shooting in both traditional and digital formats. He is a member of the American Society of Media Photographers and lives in California with his wife and three children.
