dc.description.abstract Our immediate environment has become a lost refuse for a forgotten expression. The indigenous farm architecture that scatters the countryside is this expression that has been ignored. As the title of this thesis book suggests, my thesis is concerned with the rural and small town environments and their images. I'm dealing with the "visual personality" that I feel is inherent in these vocabularies. What are the visual qualities attributable to these forms? I believe that there is a traditional aspect represented within the architecture that has yet to be explored and/or translated into today's culture. The other aspect of my investigation deals with the imagery expressed by the small town. What are the elements about a small town that give the community it's visual personality? Together, the visual imagery and personality of the ruralvernacular and small town environment, can establish a positive representation of the rural community and it's culture. The key objective in expressing these vocabularies is the step-by-step process of translating the forms, materials, and construction methodology into a identifiable, cohessive interpretation of these traditional ideologies.
