“So if a field of research opens at the crossroads of materials and state-of-the-art technologies, including high-tech answers to ecological and climatic questions, there is also another domain, low-tech in nature, which resurfaces in architecture. It is the rediscovery of a whole repertoire of techniques and materials, coming from traditional or vernacular architecture, whose use had been overshadowed, if not demoted, by Modernity… It is a matter of finding in parallel the knowledge and the know-how often only transmitted orally and which has disappeared in the leap of a generation, swept by a blind confidence in technological modernity.”
