The ideas and the materials exhibited to the public in 1964, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, are the culmination of a long process of study and research by Rudofsky on the architecture “of non-formal and nonclassi able”. The exhibition would run for eleven years, being presented in more than eighty venues around the world, widely acclaimed by audiences and critics. Carefully designed and visually engaging, “architecture without architects” challenged the conventional notions of architecture and home through the study of vernacular building technologies and alternative ways of living. It has deeply in uenced an entire generation of designers who, despite the specicity of the educational and professional careers, shared with Rudofsky the belief that “vernacular architecture does not go through fashion cycles. It is nearly immutable, indeed, unimprovable, since it serves its purpose to perfection“.
