Abstract

The criteria for design and construction of a single family dwelling in a tropical oceanside environment will be investigated.

Tropical vernacular architecture will be studied. Concepts established will be integrated in a modern architectural language, preserving the time tested truths of the local architecture.

The position of tropical vernacular architecture and contraposition of modern architecture will then be synthesized into a single family tropical dwelling based on established criteria.
