Overview

Farm: The Vernacular Tradition of Working Buildings captures the essence of life on a farm and presents an enchanting visual history of the charming and architecturally significant vernacular buildings found on farms in Europe and North America from the eighteenth century to today. Traveling through times and seasons, countries and regions, Farm documents the various cultural traditions, styles, and indigenous influences that are reflected in the overall layout of the farm complex, its individual structures, and its rural building materials, such as timber, brick, and stone.

Combined with a stunning array of interior and exterior photographs are stories from generations of families. This illustrated documentary volume shows farm buildings being saved and restored, giving them an extended life and respect for our past and their future. Farm presents a world rich in historical anecdotal detail, yet appealing to contemporary sensibilities.
