Description


How do you build a yurt? A Bedouin tent? What about a kathe? What’s a yaranga? How about a hogan? Can you stay warm in an igloo? Are there secrets to living, thriving, and surviving in specific climates?

In this unique and exquisite little book, Jonathan Horning examines basic shelters from all over the world: mud-brick adobe structures, nomads’ tents, travellers’ quick fixes, timber frame buildings, and modern solutions, including strawbale designs and geodesic domes.
