A Field Guide to the Buildings of Ireland: Illustrating the Smaller Buildings of Town and Countryside Kindle Edition
Examining the various types of building in both the North and South of Ireland, in towns villages and the countryside, this work aims to help readers to identify buildings and establish their history and purpose. Buildings are therefore identified by type, location and function. The focus is on the small "everyday" buildings of Ireland - dwellings, workplaces, churches, schools and other local symbols of administration and institution. Great works of architecture, the large country house and the monumental architecture of the city have been omitted, except where they are used to illustrate historical development. The various architectural styles of the buildings are explained and a key to architectural terms is provided. Simple vernacular structures are included, alongside buildings designed by architects. Locations in Ireland where the best examples of each of the building types may be found are included.
