heal.abstract The vernacular architecture of Santorini is a splendid example of a built space skilfully adapted to a harsh natural setting. This paper introduces its features through a systematic approach based on the 'Four Elements' concept (fire, water, earth, air) that according to ancient philosophy are the origins of nature. Each element is associated with the local environmental attributes like solar radiation, humidity, materials, wind etc., that have been fused by the ingenuity of local generations (a 'Fifth Element'?) into a minimalist as much as intricate architectural idiom of highly sustainable quality-until the era of mass tourism. en
