In the spirit of Virgil Abloh we put quotation marks around the word "vernacular." Then we replace the word with a blank and ask you to fill it in. What do they build with where you're from? What do indigenous houses look like? What methods do they prefer and who actually uses them? This issue of Paprika!, a weekly journal at the Yale School of Architecture, will probe the architectural vernacular, a concept increasingly in vogue but equally undefined.
We invite all essays and comments that reevaluate the “vernacular" in contemporary design, encouraging specific examples where possible. We also invite architects and students to redraw the primitive hut, offering readers a different base condition from which to conceive of architecture (see poster for details).
Please email all proposals and primitive huts to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by October 20.
