The demands of temporary architecture have become more urgent in recent decades for reasons related to some of the environmental disasters, civilian and military crises, which required immediate architectural solutions. The research focuses on the displaced person sector in Iraq after the registered number of refugees exceeded three million, and the research problem was determined by the “necessity of investigating temporary housing units locally and evaluating them according to the pillars of temporary architecture”. The descriptive-analytical method is relied on, by clarifying the concept of temporary architecture and defining the pillars of the architecture of the displaced. Then, introducing a theoretical framework that specifies detailed indicators that can be adopted for evaluation. After that, analyzing three types of temporary housing units constructed locally in Iraqi Kurdistan (tents, site construction, prefabricated building) to reach the results that showed the shortcomings of the local temporary units in meeting environmental and privacy needs.
