Traditionally, Indians lived in a common family system. The home’s many residents and their interpersonal relationships required well-defined spaces for a variety of activities. Inside the house, there was a private zone and a public zone around the courtyard. These homes had a very high sustainability index. They were designed to suit climate, anthropometry, and Vastu Shashtra, and local building materials and techniques were used in their construction.

Many theorists and respected architects, such as Hassan Fathy, push the underlying concepts of traditional architecture to shape contemporary design. However, in the current scenario, traditional buildings are replaced by rapidly growing concrete jungles that are neither sustainable nor sensitive to natural disasters and microclimate conditions.
