Guam and the region’s vernacular architecture is a valuable and sometimes endangered resource that can tell part of the area’s history firsthand in three-dimensional space and materials. Through course instruction and various hands-on site visits explore and learn about recognizing, appreciating, and applying the vernacular architecture of the region. The course will examine the definitions and visual examples of vernacular architecture from European and  North American examples, as well as,  influences from Spain, Mexico and the Caribbean. Additionally, Pacific examples from the Philippines and Penang, and more relevant examples from Guam and the Northern Marianas will be emphasized . Participants will have the opportunity to engage with actual examples of Guam’s vernacular through site visitations in the Hagatna and Inarajan Historic Districts as well as areas in Southern Guam and finally review vernacular planning details employed.

Buenas!
