Colonial Architecture of Antigua, Guatemala
Sidney David Markman (au). Antigua, the colonial capital of the Reino de Guatemala, comprising present-day Central America, nurtured a building tradition which resulted in a distinctive style reflecting the social, economic, & political forces which operated there for 250 years. Markman carried out a archaeological investigation of Antigua, examining the physical remains of the buildings damaged by an earthquake & abandoned in 1773. He provides an analysis of the elements of the style, part by part, together with a background history of the city itself & such matters as materials & methods of construction, labor & the building trades, architects, etc. Numerous illustrations of plans & photos.
