Semi-structured interviews and participatory observation were the main tools for field data gathering and selecting samples have done purposefully. In addition, a quantitative survey of ten reconstruction specialists was conducted to prioritize the identified criteria and assess the findings' accuracy and validity.
From the analysis, 21 criteria for cultural adequacy of temporary housing were identified and classified into seven categories. These findings show that consideration to the cultural features  of temporary housing is not only limited to its form and aesthetics ,but also it must consider resource collection, skills, technology, form, socio-economic interactions, long-term usage scenarios, and stakeholder participation to improve the comfort situation by recognizing users' diversity of characteristics, needs, and capacities. Finally, it is emphasized that although the present study focuses on the cultural adequacy of temporary housing, this aim cannot be achieved only by separately design temporary units. Also, the cultural dimension is not separate from the social, economic, geographical, and environmental dimensions of temporary housing, and these dimensions mutually affect each other.
