Vernacular means native – it defines the soul of any environment, culture, architecture, language, cuisine, and lifestyle. It is a common identity of the place which will be sustainable and energy efficient. In this data-revolution packed century, the world has become a global village, and traditions and cultures have lost their local distinctiveness. Vernacular traditions in any field are a creative process developed by the interpretation of local knowledge, geographic opportunities, challenges, and past experiences, which are negotiated and adapted by generations to the meet the needs of the time. This conference will bring persons from architecture and allied fields to speak on their experience and research. It will also encourage scholars, and activists to present papers, which would be published as a journal.
