Title:Visual Lexicon of the South African Dwelling - Visuele Leksikon van die Suid-Afrikaanse Woning

Drawings by Frank Gaylard.

There is surely no better way to discover the manifold variety of South African architectural form than through a pictorial guide such as this one. The Visual Lexicon of the South African Dwelling functions as an instructional manual, but it also creates an opportunity to identify structure and ornamental building form for appreciation at an aesthetic level. It will be of value to anyone, from the professional architect to amateur home-maker, who takes an interest in building design.
