Architectural Sustainability as a Cultural Practice


The project questions whether a juxtaposition of Nordic vernacular architectural practice and the current design- and construction process may inform a new methodological framework for integrating an intrinsic architectural sustainability in the current sustainable architectural practice. The enquiry engages in a theoretical discourse from the perspective of practice.
The Nordic vernacular defines pre-industrial archetypical building characteristics informed by intrinsic parameters, such as traditions, context and climate. The project will explore the potential of this building practice as a precedence for a temporal and location-specific architectural response to the current ecological crisis.
