Climate crisis is the biggest global threat of current era. If the necessary critical actions are not taken now, it is obvious that we are going to face the chaotic results in near future. Reports figuring out warming increase, sea level rise, pollution growth, carbon emission, and deforestation, put forward this inconvenient truth. National building energy codes and green building certificate programs seem far from a global approach. Mentioned reports also show that the building sector is the main contributor of the climate crisis. Production and transportation of modern materials, construction, space climatization and lighting processes are all operated via unsustainable methods. Globally homogenized building attitude does not meet local needs and by mismatching the local conditions it also promotes the climate crisis. On the other hand, the vernacular architecture, adapted the regional climate and culture with local materials and techniques, exist all over the world and holds the greater percentage of the global building stock. Sustainable methods of vernacular architecture must rapidly be transferred to formal architecture. Studies on various local levels must be controlled and reported by global authorities. New sustainable local building codes must be produced. Only then, the contribution of architecture to climate crisis can be reduced. This study aims to objectify the contribution of architecture to climate crisis via the mentioned reports and explain its solution approach in detail.
