Abstract

Understanding the vernacular architecture is recognizing the limitations and capabilities of the region's climate; in fact, a direct response to existing contexts and resources includes the materials and techniques. The architecture of warm and humid climates also has a particular architectural style, previously used to achieve a sustainable architecture. However, few studies have been conducted to identify vernacular architectural features and their role. The southern edge of Iran has one of the most critical climates in the world. So, cognition and extraction of similarities and differences between the vernacular architecture of Bushehr region with similar climatic zones in other countries in passive cooling techniques, provides suggestions for improvement in this area. In conclusion, these techniques are compared with Bushehr in two categories of natural ventilation and radiation and heat control in areas known to be warm and humid in four countries including Iran, Vietnam, Oman and Malaysia.
