Vernacular Wisdom

Before the age of modern materials, our human ancestors created dwellings designed for comfort and durability, built from local natural materials, and adapted to a variety of climates and conditions. This presentation explores traditional buildings, from Scandinavia to North Africa, to China, discovering functions in the forms, and finding wisdom in vernacular design that remains relevant today.
Relevance: As we embrace the ongoing task of creating a sustainable built environment, we can learn from what worked for our ancestors: Vernacular buildings often showcase design features that can address human comfort with minimum energy input.
