Abstract

J.B. Jackson was an American writer and publisher of what he called the “vernacular” landscape. He had an interest in the commonplace or everyday landscape, and how the everyday people were landscaping their environment. In one of his videos, “Figure in a Landscape: A Conversation with J.B. Jackson”, he conveys that the way he sees the landscape, not as scenery, but as man-made spaces. He is interested in what man has done to the face of the earth. My video captures an essence of vernacular architecture through another way of viewing the landscape, as having been built by different generations ie. The Old and The New.
