In part, the thesis consists of a cursory study of the research that has been conducted in the field of vernacular architecture. It offers an overview of the various approaches to researching vernacular architecture and the overall results.
The thesis also explores the modes of thought of pre and post industrial societies and the various influences that come to bear on thought.
This thesis examines the thought processes involved in the initial stage of design and proposes the use of vernacular thought process, on a conscious level, as an aid to this stage of design. It offers, as an example, a preliminary design to show how this can be addressed
