This day long workshop will explore the relevance of vernacular architecture in the creation of contemporary built environments. The primary focus will be looking back at past examples of architecture before the incorporation of mechanical systems as a mechanism to design buildings for the future. Participants will learn how to integrate passive design and multi-use components into simple and affordable structures.

The workshop will provide case studies of modern works that use common sense techniques of the past, including projects within western North Carolina. As a culminating activity, attendees will also participate in a short design charrette of a hypothetical project to reinforce the principles discussed.
