Contextual architecture or contexualism is the architecture that responds to the specific physical characteristics of its site. Unlike any specific architectural style, contextualism can be seen as a set of values that define an architectural work in the three aspects of vernacularism, regionalism and critical regionalism, according to Architecture.knoji.com.
Any site, location or a place includes a number of natural features that characterize it and create the context of the place. In architectural design, all these features should be determined, analyzed and considered in the design process in order to integrate the building into its context.
 In an architectural sense, context can be perceived as the unified whole that gives meaning to the various parts of the building.
