Diversity in Design: Perspectives from the non-Western World addresses the need for a text that encourages evaluation, appreciation, and comparison amongst diverse cultures by incorporating real-world non-Western design traditions into Western context. Each chapter represents a selected non-Western country written by native and resident experts and offers insight into that country's culture, highlighting the ways in which social and physical influences have affected the development of architecture and design. Contributors native to the featured countries offer insight into design philosophies, theories, principles and elements, symbolism, colors, patterns, and textiles from their regions.
