'Vernacular architecture is an architectural style that is designed based on local needs, availability of construction materials and reflecting local traditions. At least originally, vernacular architecture did not use formally-schooled architects, but relied on the design skills and tradition […] Vernacular architecture can be contrasted against polite architecture which is characterized by stylistic elements of design intentionally incorporated for aesthetic purposes which go beyond a building's functional requirements.'

Decay is always seductive. It is here where men and their actions transcend. The old earthen Berber architecture is one of a kind. It vanishes over time. What a refreshing philosophically different approach to our current Western perspective of consumption.
