All architectural historians have different viewpoints have a passion for their country's need to record their heritage in an ever-changing world.
Why? See Djenne, Mali, Mankind’s Creativity, Chapter 18.
Our DNA tells us we thrive on decoration from cave to palace, even on our own bodies.
From mutilation, or makeup to costume, just to be different. Some individuals have a strong desire to dress-up to show-off, from the very poor to the so-called rich. It is an innermost greed in mankind’s religion to show-off. The good architect tries to smooth out these excesses, against the here today and gone tomorrow. And to travel the world does really broaden the mind.
A good example is the BBC’s Michael Portillo, our modern-day Bradshaw evangelist, talks about how good HE think’s something is. Positively, he meets people and places.
These are the real gems, the richness of small countries and their heritage.
My “Art & Design in Architecture: made visible”, is my journey through time as a European’s view on history. I would like to see all the corners of humanity from Africa to Asia and all countries in-between, that is someone else’s challenge.
We acknowledge the good work our National Trust and English-Heritage are helping to preserve and restore the many buildings they are responsible for. One of the areas we all need to solve is the ever-increasing danger to FIRE. Here at Mumfordbooks we give FREE sample downloads with each eBook, enjoy.
