Well written with gorgeous photos! A very carefully researched ethnography of home in Southeast Asia that blends ethno-history with current practice to provide a deep analysis of the meaning of a house.

This book is an incredible work of ethnographic documentation as well as a tremendous analysis of traditional architecture. Waterson demonstrates how elements of culture, including gender, kinship, and cosmology are reflected in house design and use. The books is filled with photographs and illustrations, both by Waterson and from various collections. This book is a must for anyone interested in South-East Asia, residential architecture, or material culture.
