Of Wattle, Thatch, and Half-Timbers: Folk Architecture of the World

   This course presents a visual exploration of the relationships between natural and cultural contexts and their influences on traditional (“folk”) building forms throughout the world: from the crannogs of Ireland to the hilltop villages of Provence, from the stave churches of Norway to the shrines of Japan, from the kulas of Kosovo to the farmsteads of Estonia. This course focuses on the small but fascinating traditional structures built using “architecture without architects.” (This course has new material this year and is intended to be a separate but complementary course to “Folk Architecture of America.”)

   Instructor Arnold J. Aho has taught architecture and basic design for more than forty years at  North Carolina State U., Mississippi State U., and Norwich U., where he started the new Architecture Program and served as its first Director. He was educated at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the University of Pennsylvania where he studied under Louis I. Kahn. He has many publications on materials and energies in design, vernacular (folk) architecture, and the relationships between natural and built environments. In addition to numerous design awards, he has received distinguished teaching recognition, including the Burlington Northern Outstanding Teacher Award (MSU) and the Dana Distinguished Professor (NU).
