Book Description :

Here's a delightful guide to the most charming places to stay in Mexico: the small Mexican posada or inn. Typically, these small inns are somewhat removed from the busy downtown and tourist districts, often in quiet residential neighborhoods, on the outskirts of small towns and villages, and sometimes in rural settings. Many of these small inns occupy venerable Spanish Colonial structures: an old convent, a grandee's ranch house, or the former home of a bishop. The whitewashed walls of your room may be hung with colorful weavings, ornamental tin work, or antique religious carvings, and your deepset doorway may look out through an arched portico to a flower-filled patio or splashing fountain. These places really do exist, and inns-authority Toby Smith has recently returned from Mexico with a selective list of more than 40 of the very best. Her lively, narrative descriptions of each inn tell you everything you'll need to know including how to arrange reservations. Let Romantic Inns of Mexico be your passport to happy holidays south of the border.

Book Description :

The expedited globalised process of exchange and new forms of cultural production have transformed old established notions of identity, calling into question their conceptual foundations. This book explores the spatial and representational dimension of this phenomenon, by addressing how the reshaping of the key themes of place, architecture and memory are altering the nature, as well as, our understanding of identity. Cutting across boundaries, the book drives discussion of identity beyond the well-worn concern for its loss within a globalised context, and importantly provides links between identity, place, memory and representation in architecture. Examining a range of case studies from Australia, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Puerto Rico, Turkey and Singapore, as well as with contributions cutting across geographical and temporal boundaries, this volume addresses such issues as architecture technology, place and memory – critical issues in the monitoring and mapping of identity shift within a rapidly globalising context. With contributions from renowned authors in the field including Nicholas Temple, Patsy Hely, Robert Brown, Liane Lefaivre, John Hendrix, Ana Souto, Fiona MacLaren, Stephen Walker, Nezar AlSayyad, Andrzej Piotrowski, Catherine Ettinger, Luz Marie Rodríguez, and Raymond Quek this book presents fresh insights and diverse perspectives on the evolving question of identity and globalisation.

The latest recommendations for specific cities and towns include more photos for ease of reference, and botanical names have also been updated. With ingenuity and efficient water management, Morrow demonstrates how to create landscapes that provide shade, color, oxygen, soil protection, windscreening, and outdoor enjoyment.
