Jemish Bhanubhai Lathiya

Moreover the vernacular architecture merges well with the desert at the backdrop. The traditional architecture forms the backbone of social and cultural set up of the place. It is essential for this architecture to retain its integrity.
It commands deep interest and respect as it represents and reveals the many faceted realities of the people living there. In the Traditional architecture, buildings were designed to achieve human comfort by using locally available building materials and construction techniques which were more responsive to their climatic and geographic conditions. Learning from traditional wisdom of previous generations through the lessons of traditional building can be very powerful tool for improving the buildings of the future.
