Vernacular Architecture


N. America

 

EUROPE

There is a rich tradition of building in Europe, covering many epochs and styles. While much of European architecture has been preserved, still more has been lost through the centuries. There has been a resurgence of interest in continuing to practice European vernacular architecture, especially rammed earth and cob building. Natural building in general is gaining adherents in Europe.
