The values endorsed by vernacular architecture have traditionally promoted designs constructed and informed by and for the environment, while using local knowledge and indigenous materials. Under the imperatives and growing recognition of sustainable design, Rapid Craft seeks integration between local construction techniques and globally available digital design technologies to preserve, revive, and reshape these cultural traditions.
