About this product
- DescriptionThis unique book presents a broad multi-disciplinary examination of early temple architecture in Asia, written by two experts in digital reconstruction and the history and theory of Asian architecture. The authors examine the archetypes of Early Brahmanic, Hindu and Buddhist temple architecture from their origins in rth western India to their subsequent spread and adaptation eastwards into Southeast Asia. While the epic monuments of Asia are well kwn, much less is kwn about the connections between their building traditions, especially the common themes and mutual influences in the early architecture of Java, Cambodia and Champa. While others have made significant historiographic connections between these temple building traditions, this book unravels, for the first time, the specifically compositional and architectural linkages along the trading routes of South and Southeast Asia. Through digital reconstruction and recovery of three dimensional temple forms, the authors have developed a digital dataset of early Indian antecedents, tested new techlogies for the acquisition of built heritage and developed new methods for comparative analysis of built form geometry. Overall the book presents a vel approach to the study of heritage and representation within the framework of emerging digital techniques and methods.
