Vernacular Architecture as a Cultural Milieu: Interpreting Asia’s Built Heritage Trailer Filming

 In TELI Diary

Facing globalization in the 21st century, the originally diversified social and cultural aspects of different countries are blending together like never before. Throwback to the time before the world becomes flat, culture is highly prominent as it refers to a set customs, traditions, and values of a society or community. There are untold story behind every person, and so do every architecture. From ancient Greek story to the Bible, some of the world’s most fascinating stories settings are always rooted in architecture.

This year, TeLi is honoured to partner with the Department of Architecture of HKU to kickstart the production of the brand new e-learning course: Vernacular Architecture as a Cultural Milieu: Interpreting Asia’s Built Heritage. In today’s trailer filming, Professor David Lung and Lady Edith Kotewall guide us to explore and appreciate the human centered design world of vernacular architecture in Asia.

“We use Asia as the backdrop for the discussion of these topics, not only because of Asia’s rich heritage and diversity, but also due to the unique complexity that the people in the region have been faced with, as they go through rapid economic, social and cultural changes.” said Lung.
