Architecture are not inanimate objects such as stones, architecture is not only a physical form, architecture is not a simple beauty, but the spirit of architecture which are the most important things you must have. This is the reason why an architect needed in terms of designing a building. No one else is to blow the soul (soul) in the building so that the building will feel more alive and comfortable to use.

Therefore, if an architect in the design of a building is not only using the logic, but influenced by intuition and his heart in the design.

Due to the unique architecture that has a spirit (soul) is only able to survive in the face of the progress of time lately, both in modern architecture and architecture post-modern minimalist is also a romantic show architecture is only a symptom of a mere game. This is only a piece of architecture is a building that could not be part of a life. How it is an architectural masterpiece built since does not provide a lesson for others the way build?. The quality of a work of architecture is no longer determined by the ability to create a space, but the ability to combine training.

If you look at the traditional architecture, our admiration for today is not ever end. The domain of traditional architecture presents a significant space with bentukannya an honest person, it is always interesting to understand. form of traditional construction reflects how you can build a visual that can be learned by everyone. Traditional architecture is able to position itself as part of life. Unfortunately the way of building, materials and standards that are transparent to appear in a work, gradually becoming obsolete and emerging domain of a building sophisticated materials industry and be able to create a more attractive form of architecture.

Desire (outstanding) "wow" using modern versatile material creates a homogeneous configurations that the more left the continuity of a culture. Even national identity loses its flavor if you haven't already lost and the technological sophistication of interesting material all countries developing try to numb and in global identity that is not jammed. In the middle of the hustle and bustle of the form of game in the works of architecture today appeared some terms that intends to save the contradiction between the nuances of identity that arises in a traditional and modern in actual performance. Some people call architecture contemporary contextual architecture and echoes appearing recently is the "vernacular architecture".

In this article the vernacular meaning will study together with the nature of the desire for a strong tradition. In simple terms, we can interpret the word "vernacular" as an expression of words or a Community (in vernuculus America) dialect or worldwide architectural vernacular architecture that are commonly found in homes. Bernard Rudofsky (1964) in his book "Architecture without architects", wrote "vernacular architecture does not pass through fashion cycles." It is almost immutable, indeed, that serves its purpose perfectly. While masters Rapoport (1969) in his book ' House, form and culture, defined as "lore" vernacular architecture.

Vernacular architecture made, the term has appeared in the era of the 1960s, but not many architects are paying attention, that only considered as popular and understated architecture the overlooked architecture. However, when a critical architect of world-class, Kenneth Frampton (1982), coined the term "regionalism" in his book modern architecture and current criticism, he criticized the universality of the phenomenon of modern architecture in the hemisphere, and the question of regional identity. He says in his book "Everything will depend on the ability to recreate culture rooted in his own tradition while ownership of foreign influences in the field of culture and civilization. Regionalism is a dialectical expression. It is consciously aims to deconstruct the universal modernity in terms of values and images which are the quintessential Rootes and at the same time for adulterating the basic paradigm with references from outside sources”.

When this issue about the people who started hotly debated environmental architecture and vernacular architecture save the response. By the popular vernacular architecture can easily understand as a work of architecture that have led to a community or place that is clear, to the local character. Learn traditional houses that can draw lessons from space, shape and structure of a unified and honest system. The houses of the people inside, such as home Honai in Irian Jaya, House boat in Kalimantan (Borneo), which often appear as an anonymous work which was built by the local population with construction techniques and materials will be studied for generations and get in the local site. "The people" work reflects a society that is familiar with the nature, beliefs and norms are wisely. Shape, proportion, and the decoration is a significant symbol. They do not put a goal of beauty, but to create a space with the principles of life presents the structure that has stood the test of the nature.

Christopher Alexander, "which has a language of architecture, vernacular architecture, the language closely related to aspects of the tradition." The tradition of giving a guarantee to continue with the continuity of an architectural order through the system that created the perception of space, materials and the type of construction. How comprehensible space and construction as a legacy that will change slowly through a routine.

"Tradition" of Word, actually comes from the Latin "trado - transdo", meaning "to pass on to others". Many people try to define what that tradition. But the point that it cannot be denied that there is meaning in the tradition of follow to the next generation. Hence the term "vernacular" and "tradition" are often used together to complement each other. Assessment does not mean that the tradition obliges us to live again in the past. But the inspiration of a tradition of good will melt in our mind and be able to push an architect to create a work which has a strong character.
