It is our pleasure to invite you to the next arctalk of the department of Architecture in FAED. This Wednesday March 28th the arctalks will present the lecture Rwanda_The vernacular materials presented by Alice Tasca.

“Vernacular” in the architectural context is a term used to categorize methods of construction which use locally available resources.

The lecture tries to define classify and explain which are the materials that can be called “vernacular” in Rwanda. We will describe which are the techniques used locally to build with them and how can they be interpreted and adapted to answer the contemporary needs.
Bamboo, wood and earth as materials are only some of the topics: lots of different fibers and common used techniques can be translated and applied to build small and useful structures.
The lecture will use a design example that used vernacular techniques to improve the existing.
The talk will take place this Wednesday March 28th at 4.30pm at FAED building.
We hope to find you all there.
