    Sri Lanka has a rich and ancient tradition in building, most importantly, building in ways appropriate for climate and context. It is important for contemporary Sri Lankan architecture to build appropriately for this region, adopting proper technology and materiality, incorporating passive design strategies for natural light and ventilation, thus imbue each building with a place specific response and identity.Sustainable architecture was always ingrained in Sri Lankan architecture, where building was always done with sensitivity to its tropical context and its people. Approaches that embrace these factors are key and should be encouraged.
