Description

Sámi Huksendáidda: The FANzine #1 – For Beginners is an overview of traditional Saami architecture and a research on the methodology used by architects in the contemporary design for a traditional Saami Community.

Sámi Huksendáidda (‘The Sámi Art of Building’) was launched in 2007 by Sámi architect Joar Nango as an attempt to raise the awareness of the architecture of the indigenous people of Arctic and Northern Europe. ‘It is an unwritten chapter in the European history of architecture. The aim has been to visualize a complete picture of the traditional Sámi architectural typology as a creative bank of the development of new design-knowledge.’ The annual zine project is intended to be a forum for critical reflections and creative research on the architectural potential for the construction of new identities through merging traditional and contemporary design methods. The launch issue, Sámi huksendáidda: For Beginners, provides an overview of traditional Sámi architecture – the structures and buildings that are connected to both a nomadic reindeer-herding culture and the resident fishermen and farmers of the coastline – and research into the methodology used by architects for contemporary design in Sámi communities.
