Learning from the Vernacular

Lecture by Martin Videgård

Avoiding the typical Postmodern rhetoric of the 1980s, their projects relate to vernacular approaches, where the problem of form is addressed not as language or aesthetical problem but as one that deals first of all with questions of efficiency.

From a lecture given at ETH Zurich, Chair of Prof. Dr. Josep Lluis Mateo
