ISVS aims to promote awareness and research on vernacular traditions by organizing seminars focused on important aspects of vernacular every two years in specifically chosen places across the globe. The last seminar, ISVS-5 held in Colombo, Sri Lanka focused on Vernacular Futures provided a great opportunity to explore the future of the vernacular traditions resulting in a suggestion that the survival and continuity of vernacular traditions may lie in ordinary informal buildings which are usually not regarded as vernacular. Building upon this insight, ISVS-6 in 2012 is delighted to lead the debate on vernacular traditions of contemporary societies and their building and settlement forms which display the same characteristics of the conventionally conceptualized ‘vernacular’. This does not mean that the ‘historical vernacular’ is out of the conference scope. Instead juxtaposition of ‘historical vernacular’ and the ‘contemporary vernacular’ is expected to be explored in such a way that the nuances of their makings, and relevance in today’s world could be understood thoroughly.
