TWO WHAT EXTENT THE VERNACULAR URBAN FROM OF THE HIGHLAND-VILLAGES OF SOUTH-WESTERN SAUDI ARABIA IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE INHABITANTS’ NEEDS

Auther : By: Prof. Mohammed Abdullah Eben Saleh

          The study of original urban patterns and architectural characteristics in Saudi Arabia as well as urban and architectural elements and artistic touches is considered viable and necessary.  The continuing drawbacks of vernacular architecture and the Westerns influence cause planners and architects to turn away from the local heritage.  It is important not merely to document the traditional architecture, which has been subjected to loss with time, but to attempt to comprehend it and to realize the potential meaning in its structure and forms in an attempt to reach a contemporary syntax in the face of current exotic urban and architectural trends.

          This paper analyzes the vernacular urban and architectural elements in the highlands villages of Southwestern Saudi Arabia as a dialogue between architecture and the needs of inhabitants.  The study attempts to understand the pattern and form of the vernacular villages and reveal the causes behind that form.  Although such research is indispensable and pressingly required, it is not widely pursued because of the difficulty and complexity of understanding the legal, culture and the roots of heritage and the history of the research area.
