Greetings learners!

The wait is over. Vernacular Architecture of Asia: Tradition, Modernity and Cultural Sustainability is here!

The course aims to:

  • Deepen your appreciation of the values and meanings of vernacular architecture in your local environments
  • Establish your personal perspectives on the more complex issues in vernacular architecture, such as self-conscious or un-self-conscious way of building, informal settlements, and cultural sustainability
  • Help you to generate your own ideas of how to protect and conserve your local vernacular built environment

If you are someone who is curious or cares about the everyday environment you live in, this course is for you. Learn more details, register, and continue the journey with us in Vernacular Architecture of Asia: Tradition, Modernity and Cultural Sustainability. I look forward to seeing you on July 26th!
