When it comes to the worlds of architecture and urban planning, the word “traditional” seems to be on everyone’s lips. In a move that would have seemed completely foreign in the period of high Modernism, there is a renewed interest in those more traditional building forms. One organization that is intimately concerned with such developments is the International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture & Urbanism (INTBAU). With a patron of no less a stature than the Prince of Wales, the group is committed to bringing architects (and students) together with artisans and urban planners in an attempt to “…maintain and restore traditional buildings.” On this site, visitors can learn more about the organization’s day-to-day activities and also learn about some of their upcoming conferences and sponsored lectures. For some truly meaty discussions, visitors should move on to the “Opinions” section which feature essays such as “The Loss of Identity in Mediterranean Architecture” and “Twentieth Century Architecture as a Cult”.
