One of the problems created by the mass production of prefabricated buildings devoid of both architecture and architectural expression, was the introduction of stereotype buildings and designs, as an example... If the architectural design of a house submits to certain regulations corresponding to specific needs of one community, it does not necessarily have to react and comply with the needs of another. As a consequence of this misunderstanding, the link between the indigenous local cultures, and their expression through the many distinctive lifestyles of that specific community, including architecture, has been lost. This negligence of spirituality and humanity in architecture, is of principal concern. The deprivation of architecture from spirituality and humanity, is the deprivation of architecture from its primary purpose. Architecture must respond to the different requirements and needs, of various and distinct cultures if it is to fulfil its proper function, and as architects describe a satisfying plan or design as a 'working' plan. In architecture ideas have been introduced directed towards finding a solution, for architecture that complies with indigenous needs, and cultural lifestyles. Vernacular architecture is one of them. Many architects from different parts of the world, each working in his or her own native country, contribute differently. By using native traditional designs and construction techniques, a wide variety of different architectural buildings were built in accordance with their local environment, these buildings stand as the outcome of their research and belief. Vernacular architecture as an ideal was faced with overwhelming resistance and opposition from 'modern' architects. The modern architects were benefiting from the stereotype system and mass production, and for them to restyle to another system was difficult, as they became accustomed to the new trend for quick accomplishments and fast profit. The vernacular concept and the architects adopting it, were accused of being romantic dreamers and backward thinkers. This paper aims to pursue the *repercussion of vernacular architectural work, and the impact of architects such as Hassan Fathy and abd al-Wahed al-Wakil on architecture and architects in their native country and abroad. The question posed will be is vernacular architecture the right path to follow and continue ? and if so from were do we continue ? and how can this ideal be implemented and generalised. Data on cultural form, architecture and urban design drawn from 4a study of the traditional architecture expressed in certain residential areas of Egypt and Greece, will be used to illustrate the principle of vernacular architecture, intended to bring peoples values, actions, perceptions, and activities into the appropriate physical form.
