Taking Bernard Rudofsky's emphasis on forgotten vernacular buildings and "architecture without architects" as the underlying theme in their work, Smith and Thompson's sources of inspiration have varied widely over the years, from early European modernism to the barns and fishermen's cottages of Nantucket, to the monasteries of Tibet, the hill towns of Italy and the stilted kampongs of Malaysia.
