Vesnická stavební kultura
Title in English: Rural Architectural Culture
The publication follows the traditional rural house from the point of view of building materials, house arrangement, echoes of styles as well as timbered and sacral buildings. It features an interdisciplinary approach that includes methodological procedures applied by architects, preservationists, historians and ethnologists. Even though the rural house was a theme of synthetic works, one did not succeed in explaining all the genetic and typological issues; moreover, the researchers’ interpretations differ on a lot of phenomena. Historical research of constructions and ethnologic research, applying new methods of dating recently, as well as plan documentation discovered in archive funds offer new knowledge that corrects the hitherto findings based on the application of traditional macroscopic methods.
