Abstract: The interdisciplinary concern of rehabilitation and reconstruction following disasters would highly interact with different aspects of affected communities’ future life. And the applied plans by authorized housing policy makers would play a crucial role in achieving either missing the expected goals as set within the comprehensive recovery process. Whilst, houses present cultural values of local communities and households tend to express their cultural identity through housing. In fact, housing derived from the traditional cultural bases would form the future cultural fundamentals at the same time. Thus, cultural consequences following natural disasters must be well monitored in every phase of the recovery process including housing programs. Highlighting the role of involved organizations and specifically donors’ attitude toward cultural concerns, present study aims to apply a comparative review method. It investigates to recognize effective housing reconstruction strategies through which cultural values of survived communities within housing may be resumed. In addition, hereby some of the available case studies by scholars regarding respected theme would be addressed. And the impressive factors on cultural changes within new housing after disasters will be evaluated and presented within categorized topics in order to achieve a clear vision of this conflict.
