Book Description
The intention of this book is to explore, through a visual commentary, the extraordinary timber buildings of Kerala in India. Kerala temples in particular are unique to the sub-continent as they are built with wooden roofs and covered by sopper tiles. This allows for simplicity of form that is later developed to create beautiful spaces. The photographs have been composed keeping in mind how a building silhouette interacts with the surrounding sky and landscape. The temples are usually set in an exceptional part of the countryside and the visitor is able to experience a visual feast before entering into the rituals of prayer.
