Sustainable design requires that design practitioners respond to a particular set of social, cultural and environmental conditions. 'Vernacular Architecture and Regional Design' defines a set of strategies for understanding the complexities of a regional setting. Through a series of international case studies, it examines how architects and designers have applied a variety of tactics to achieve culturally and environmentally appropriate design solutions.

. Shows that architecture and design are inextricably linked to social and environmental processes, and are not just technical or aesthetic exercises. . Articulates a variety of methods to realise goals of socially responsible and environmentally responsive design. . Calls for a principled approach to design in an effort to preserve fragile environments and forge sustainable best practice.

'Vernacular Architecture and Regional Design' will appeal to educators and professional practitioners in the fields of architecture, heritage conservation and urban design.
