The Local Vernacular
A pyramidal structure was constructed as part of the lecture series “vernacular 1:1” at the University of Arts, Berlin. In stark contrast to modern high-tech architecture, traditional or vernacular constructions stand for a site-specific and resource-conserving use of local materials. From these centuries-old techniques, contemporary approaches can be deduced and combined with modern methods to create new material systems.
The availability of materials, processing methods and joining techniques form the framework for scale and form and thus become an integral part of the design development.
