Abstract: Cultural inferences are lost in the context of city, which can be reestablished with conscious design decisions by the architect and conscious house dwellers. Delving into those regionally established architectural elements found in Bangladesh or in the South East Asian climate, connections are found which are crucial to achieve the modern green building. Traditional architecture addresses sustainability. Salutogenesis is an approach coined by Aaron Antonovsky focusing on factors that support human health and well-being. This study draws the linkages between traditional architectural practices and achieving salutogenesis.
