On the first world, traditional techniques has subsist on the vernacular architecture rehabilitation projects. As an elite value with bucolic vision. After twenty years learning from the pre industrial techniques at my homeland, we can state that the worth it to be re propose in our days has more to see with the essence rather than the form.
