BRITISH COLONIAL ARCHITECTURE IN CYPRUS. The architecture of the British Colonial Administration 1878-1960.
This important book by Professor Costas Georghiou, Chartered Architect & Town Planner, is the first comprehensive and scholarly study of the architecture and town planning of the British Colonial Administration in Cyprus. It examines the colonial context within which the buildings and infrastructure were created and describes, analyses and evaluates in detail sixty significant buildings and works.
The book is a distillation of the author’s lifetime experience in Architecture, Town Planning and Historic Building Conservation practice and academic work and is based on extensive research in Cypriot, British and other archives, interviews with former colonial architects and officials or their descendants and on-site surveys. It contains 288 pages 240×300 mm and in the region of 300 drawings, photographs and maps, many of these being previously unpublished material.
The book will not only be of interest to practitioners and students of Architecture, Engineering and Town Planning but also to members of the public who wish to know more about what physical structures can tell us about our history, colonialism and decision making.
