A Living Tradition [Architecture of the Central Gulf Coast] is the first in the Living Tradition series. It is a richly illustrated description of the architectural traditions of the Gulf Coast over the past three centuries. But this is not just another catalog of American architecture of Caribbean heritage. Rather, it is a workbook, or "pattern book," that examines each pattern of architecture in detail, such as the proportion of a window, the slope of a roof, or the design of a garden wall. By doing so, it directs the design of new buildings that can become part of the centuries-long tradition of the architecture of the Most-Loved Places of the Gulf Coast.
