An amazing richness of styles is presented by the celebrated photographer Luca Invernizzi Tettoni. Elegant stilt houses and traditional bamboo constructions are viewed with the same fine eye as the grandest homes and most opulently decorated palaces and temples – from spa to tropical and from colonial to vernacular, through examples of private homes, hotels and public buildings. Ultimate Tropical focuses on the Asian tropics – Thailand, the Maldives, Vietnam, Burma, Laos, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Indonesia and Cambodia – exploring the fascinating effects of the movement of peoples on the evolution of local architectural styles in the different countries, and the ways in which they have been adapted to modern and contemporary building types of spectacular variety.
