Critical Regionalism

Critical regionalism is not historical revival or postmodern architecture.
It is a form of modern architecture built to fit well within its physical and cultural context, through use of local materials and construction techniques, for example.

Unlike typical modernism, it does not seek to create a new culture but instead it expands upon what currently exists.

More info on critical regionalism

Towards a Critical Regionalism: Six Points for an Architecture of Resistance by Kenneth Frampton

Post examples of buildings that fit this philosophy.

Firodiya Center for Inspiration, Ahmednagar, India (2015)
Architects: Studio A dvaita

This new construction uses traditional handmade bricks, bright earthy paints, mud domes, Kotah stone flooring, corrugated roofs, and salvaged local material in order to fit well within the Indian context.
It wouldn't fit in anywhere else, but at the same time, it feels modern, and keeps up to modern standards of sustainability.

That's exactly postmodernism, but in the general sense of the word, which is used in the other fields of culture. It's interesting that in architecture the word is used with such a narrow definition. (And even now I'm not sure that particular narrow sense will be the one that will eventually enter the dictionaries.)

Very interesting stuff, thanks for creating (and feeding) this thread.

Very interesting examples.

Though I'm curious what's postmodern about the last one in Peru

I love it. Reminds me of Ricardo Bofill's work.

Very insightful thread. Well done.


I would say that the Pritzker Prize winning Australian architect Glenn Murcutt would fall into this category.

They nailed it. This is what they should build in China, not those ridiculous european-ish kitsch or modern glassboxes. Each country/region should embrace their culture, vernacular architecture and adapt it to madern times. This is a great design, quite simple for my taste, but original and serious. Neither kitsch or "international" crap. You see this and instantly identify eastern Asia.
