Architectural Guide Phnom Penh
With 141 examples from the city's four main phases of development the Architectural Guide Phnom Penh presents a comprehensive overview of the built heritage, illustrated with contemporary and historical photographs. Phnom Penh was founded in the fifteenth century, and then planned and expanded during the French Protectorate (1863–1953). Early religious and vernacular buildings, the glittering structures of the Royal Palace, and French colonial buildings already coexisted when the ‘New Khmer Architecture’ was developed the period following independence in 1953.
