A wide array of huts, shanties, sheds, outbuildings, and shacks of all kinds populate the pages of this book. This purpose-built typology is able to fill numerous roles, while its materials, placement, and manner of construction can vary widely depending on factors such as function, geography, culture, and climate. Here we find small-scale structures from around the globe, from colourful beach huts in England and earth and bamboo pavilions in the jungle, to simple hunting blinds, fisherman’s shacks, and storage sheds. Whether it is a slapdash lean-to or capable of withstanding the most inclement weather, the shack is an often overlooked aspect of vernacular architecture everywhere.
