Conserving Earth and Timber Vernacular Architecture: Traditional and Scientific Approaches to its un

October 1-4, 2020
Conserving Earth and Timber Vernacular Architecture: Traditional and Scientific Approaches to its un
Regardless of geographic location or cultural origins, conserving vernacular architecture follows a similar process. It starts with an understanding of the building’s form, construction methods and materials, and how they were shaped by the customs and traditions of their builders. Conservation treatment strategies can then be developed, guided by this understanding, and by the growing body of knowledge in conservation. Implementation requires practitioners who are knowledgeable and skilled in traditional methods as well as documentation best practice. This workshop offers insight into this process using local and international case studies and perspectives. Virtual site tours allow participants to observe ‘close-up’ examples that illustrate the classroom sessions.

Learning Objectives:
  • Summarize and sequence at a high level, the steps, expertise involved in conserving vernacular earth and timber architecture from the range of international case studies presented.
  • Determine the level of understanding required for a vernacular earth and timber site before detailed investigation can proceed.
  • List the types of in-depth investigation or research that may be used to inform the conservation a vernacular earth architectural site.
  • Explain how a site’s heritage values and condition are used to guide the development of conservation policy.
  • Gain experience (virtually) with the practical considerations of craft practice such as the sourcing, mixing, preparation and application of traditional materials on timber and earthen structures.
  • Describe how the use of traditional vernacular materials is both authentic and intrinsically sustainable.
