Abstract (in English)

Vernacular architecture is nowadays gaining ever wider recognition in architecture and protection of monuments. This concept is weIl known by architects and experts at protection of monumènts, although it is interpreted in different ways by various people, sometimes it is identified with national architecture. Ever since it exists, architecture has always been the totality of works by the investor, the designer and the building contractor, all coordinated by the architect. In vernacular architecture, these functions do not separate, not even in the case of specializing "craftsmen"; frequently the builder, the designer and the contractor is one and the same man. The dividing line between industrial and vernacular architecture is even sharper, the examples cited in my presentation show how agricultural monuments become agricultural-industrial ones and later vernacular industrial monuments. Their preservation, restoration and adjustment to our times are possible only if they obtain an appropriate function.
