Local architect Frank Harmon, FAIA appears in the new [December/January] issue of Dwell Magazine in the Conversation column.  Frank speaks his mind on Regionalism, sustainability in relation to vernacular, and some of his recent work.  He lives and works in Raleigh has recently received much attention for his contemporary and sustainable work.   

I am not interested in vernacular to be sentimental.  I am interested in what it can teach us.  All vernacular architecture is sustainable.  It is always inherently related to its region.  But let me emphasize that regionalism should not be confused with parochialism any more than you would call Faulkner a local Southern writer. - Frank Harmon
