Shifting gears slightly here is part of my project that is exploring the vernacular of Denmark. It transitions from the previous  part of my project that covered vegetable communities by exploring the principles of an ecovillage and uses Dyssekilde at as the example. Beginning with a brief overview of how to identify vernacular this projects looks at Denmarks vernacular by covering examples such as- the home situated in the landscape, the influence of Viking heritage through details, and begins to explore the various roof types found throughout Denmark.  More is to be documented about the various roof styles in the next post.  the reason for this topic as a field study is because I had taken a class during my stay here in Copenhagen discussing the vernacular of Denmark. The class was offered through the Danish Institute for Study Abroad a program that offers designers from all back grounds to have a chance to study their respective fields in Denmark. Here is a link to the DIS home page if you search it can be a great resource for  anyone interested in danish culture.
