summary This investigation arises from the need to include the systems of environmental natural conditioning and the architectural project in the ecology of the desert dry-climate. In this research, it is proposed to investigate the main features and techniques used in Southern Peru as an answer to build in a desert environment with high levels of sunlight and very few rain days. Identifying the historic processes of the vernacular architecture, in which we recognize evolved coherent forms, making possible to define the strategies with which to recreate architecture responsive to the ecology of the desert dry- climate.
