ARCHITECTURE WITHOUT ARCHITECTS Part II

VILLAGES IN THE SUN 
Mediterranean Community Architecture

 by Myron Goldfinger, published by Lund Humphries [1969]
Mykonos, Greece


Alberobello, Italy - each trullo exisits of a square or rectangular base topped by a conical dry stone roof with a chalk-coated finial. The domes' interiors are whitewashed for good light reflection.



      Post-Byzantine churches of the Aegean islands
Takrouna, Tunisia - built by the Berbers, the use of stone for both walls and vaulting is in response to the local scarcity of wood and for maximum protection against heat and cold: a thick coat of white stucco reflects sunlight and reduces wind infiltration.
