Urban Vernacular in the 21st Century

BY ELAINE YOLAM KWONG
@ VOL 150 ON SEP 27, 2017

"My thesis is to rethink how to plan cities in the future and reveal that these vernacular settlements are not frozen in time."

In "Urban Vernacular in the 21st Century" from PechaKucha Tokyo Vol. 150, Architect Elaine Kwong, backed by success stories of today’s fastest-growing urban collectives in China, shares with us fresh perspectives of the term ‘vernacular’.

Elaine spent the last couple of years at Harvard University researching alternate ways of urban development that can enable people to be agents of their environments rather than passive beneficiaries or victims.

建築家のElaine Kwongさんは、ハーバード大学で数年過ごした後、社会に対し積極的に環境について伝えるため、都市開発の代替方法を研究しました。 今日の中国で急成長している都市集団の成功事例研究に裏打ちされ、Elaineさんは私たちと共に「vernacular」という言葉の新しい視点を共有したいと考えています。
