The issues of upgrading environmental, protection and reuse of historic interest move this research, which finds in the study of the forms, technical and character of the cities of the Mediterranean, the appropriate answers. From urban scale analysis, traditional town configuration, you come to the test of its architecture and its extrinsic systems: court house, the takhtabush, the loggias, courtyards, covers, the mashrabiya, the claustrum, the wind-escaper, the malqaf, the badgir, the qà'a, the salsabil, the landscape .This cities subject to extreme climatic situations in the past have given architectural and techniques adequate answers, simple and efficient. For example, the relative humidity and temperature controlled through the construction of stone and brick of raw land surface. This condition combined with control over operation of cooling systems, whose method in a hot-dry climate, is to exploit the high thermal mass of masonry stone or brick cooked or raw. This process can slow down the passage of heat inside and maintain low temperatures during the hottest hours.
