The American Barn

review: landscape books

By David Plowden.WW Norton, 2003. 160pp. £32

David Plowden's ostensible subject is American vernacular architecture, but the barns he records in fine black and white photographs are inseparable from the Midwestern landscape they stand in, which Plowden makes clear - not just picturing the detail of a timber frame or masonry facade, but looking from a distance to the skyline that these buildings punctuate.
