Traditional Architecture
How can we define "Traditional Architecture"? as things are changing, shall we consider the architecture of the slums, being a part of traditional architecture?

Traditional Architecture
Mamdouh, any human made structure or reuse of natural features, used for human habitation is architecture of one form or another.

Given that most slum buildings are home made they can be described as being vernacular architecture and where the influence of slum buildings affects the culture for more than one generation then it can be described as traditional architecture as well.
