Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Latticework is a framework consisting of a criss-crossed pattern of strips of building material, typically wood or metal. The design is created by crossing the strips to form a network. Latticework can be purely ornamental, or can be used to support a structure such as a lattice girder bridge. In India, the house of a rich or noble person may be built with a baramdah or verandah surrounding every level leading to the living area. The upper floors often have balconies overlooking the street that are shielded by screens jaalis carved in stone latticework keeping the area cool and giving privacy.show more
