hi aafrin,
you should study works of Laurie Baker, and also works of Eugene Pandala,both working on vernacular principles of south india. Baker has done number of projects in and around trivandrum Center for Development Studies, SEWA - trivandrum, Chitralekha studios, these are brilliant examples of vernacular blended with modern technology.
