Product Description & Reviews

Since 1994, South Africa has undergone a steady erosion of its indigenous built environment, with a concomitant loss of indigenous building technology and its specialised terminology. This glossary is based on the premise that readers cannot understand the culture of a people unless they have a grasp of the nuances and hidden meanings of the language. The authors bring together in one volume the terminologies that are used by southern Africa's rural builders. The terminology used by indigenous builders is included here, as well as the terminology used by subsequent colonial white settlers, including buildings of the so-called Cape Dutch, English Georgian, Victorian, and Indian Traditions. The text is set out in alphabetical order. It comprises each term in its original language, its translation where appropriate into isiZulu, and its definition in English and isiZulu. One of the strengths of English-isiZulu Glossary of Architectural Terms is its visual component of accompanying sketches that expertly illustrate the terms. This book is designed not only to assist in the teaching of architecture, but also to aid others who are interested in the field. Researchers and practitioners in disciplines such as anthropology, archaeology, culture studies and building science will find it a valuable addition to their libraries. (Series: UKZN Bilingual Glossary Series) [Subject: Architecture, African Studies, Anthropology, Art History]
