New Architecture on Indigenous Lands

Tribal Architecture gets back to its Native roots - and becomes something new

New Architecture on Indigenous Lands takes readers on a virtual tour of recent Native building projects in Canada and the western and midwestern United States. With close attention to details of design, questions of tradition, and cultural issues, and through interviews with designers and their Native clients, it provides an in-depth introduction to the new Native architecture in its many guises.

"New Architecture on Indigenous Lands is a ground-breaking study of a largely unrecognized new genre in contemporary North American architecture. The authors have taken on a subject that until now has not been critically studied or celebrated in the architectural press, except in very limited terms. Perhaps most importantly, the book recognizes not only the extraordinary new works of architecture just beginning to transform reservation communities, but also the importance of making that transformation."
