The book The Architecture of the Cypriots during the British Occupation concerns the buildings funded by the Cypriots for their own use as opposed to the buildings funded by the British colonial administration.
Whereas in the case of buildings belonging to Cypriots, most were designed by Cypriots architects and engineers some foreigners were also employed. Cypriot vernacular architecture buildings are not covered in this book.
This book concerns the buildings designed during the early of British Rule by master-builders/practical architects who possessed architectural and building construction skills and later on by academically educated architects and engineers who had studied abroad.
The book is divided into three main sections in chronological order, corresponding to internationally acknowledged periods-watersheds where the political, economic, and social conditions change, including the styles of architecture:
Period from the beginning of British rule in 1878 until the end of World War one
Period from the end of World War One to the end of World Wars Tow
Period from 1946 until independence in 1960. A special section on town planning and urban design is also included.
An introduction to each period is provided, followed by a recording, analysis, and evaluation of significant and representative buildings, classified by type, for example, houses, schools, religious buildings, etc.
