Biography Vernacular Designs

Vernacular refers to buildings whose design is determined by an informal local tradition, rather than by a particular designer. See also Traditional, Collective, and Unknown.

The best vernacular architecture, as a time-tested consensus response to the environment, available materials, production methods, and cultural structures, can show beautiful fitness to purpose. In addition, neighborhoods and cityscapes created and maintained in a consistent common vernacular style sometimes exhibit the harmony of a family of repeating forms with consistency in adaptive variations, such that the many beautiful parts also achieve great beauty as a collective whole.
