ABE Journal - Architecture Beyond Europe - n°9-10/2016

This thematic section takes as its subject the relationship between modernism and vernacular architecture in the colonial and postcolonial world. It explores this relationship as a dynamic between modernism and the vernacular, rather than in the more familiar and uni-directional form of modernism's appropriation of vernacular forms. That this coming together had as much consequence for the vernacular side of the equation as it did for the modernist side, is often recognised but rarely researched. It also explores situations where modernism’s affiliating strategy with vernacular architecture coexisted with policies supporting dispossession and social re-structuring, putting the very existence of the vernacular at risk.
