Why "Vernacular Architecture?"

Over the last decades there has been a dramatic break between human intervention and natural environment.

And yet man has inhabited the Earth for millions of years, achieving well-being and quality of life without depending on energy-intensive machines. There is a profound wisdom in the ancient construction techniques, a disarming efficiency in the vernacular traits of poor architecture.

To look forward sometimes one has to to step into the past, and this is why the course in Vernacular Architecture was established

Visits, workshops, special lectures and critiques in the most complete and exciting experience of post-graduate education.
