Just eccentric ordinary people making it up as they go along.
I recently learned why the vernacular architecture pictured in your post will never be shown in architecture school. The people who built them, did so only for themselves, they have no need for academic support. For this reason alone, academics hate the ‘untrained’ independent. A classmate of mine recently left school because a side project he was working on went into construction. When he told the teachers he was leaving to build a project, they all became mad. They said he was not able to build yet because he did not have his degree yet. He said ‘construction starts next week’
Do you think Louis Kahn would like those works?
This actually draws the line between the mainstream stuff you see coming up everyday.Brilliant collaboration.
