summary As technology advances, users become more detached from the way things work and are produced. Users end up being pure consumers and leave their positions as decision makers behind. Before the architectural and building processes were industrialized, most practitioners of so - called vernacular architecture were in fact the inhabitants of what they built, which easily met their specific personal needs because they were in total control of the building process. This paper will focus on the possibility of non - architect users of architecture as decision - makers in order to establish designs that satisfy their individual needs.
