Architectural regionalism : promoting a sustainable regional design

by Reighley, Stephen Watters

Abstract

This study focuses on the nature of and questions concerning the built environment. This paper deals with the concept of creating a regionally appropriate environmental architecture within an increasingly globalized and modernized society. Architectural regionalism is the central theme of this paper and deals with issues surrounding the ability to create buildings that are not only regional in style, but also that function in concert with the local and global environmental and ecological contexts. My thesis is that architectural regionalism, as a way to create a built environment that is connected to the regional climate, resources and culture, results in better and more sustainable places for people to live.
