Abstract: 

The aim of this thesis is to research and study vernacular architecture in Yazd. Additionally, this study will explore the social and environmental bases of the traditional Yazdi house. In order to develop a cohesive understanding of contemporary issues in Iranian design, a variety of resource materials will be drawn on, including journal articles, reports, books, and field studies. The thesis will culminate in a project to design a large-scale master plan and schematic housing layouts for a residential complex at Yazd University that will house professors and their immediate family members.
