    Post self conscious

    Hi,

    I would like to know what the whole below sentence means?
    I'm in trouble particularly with the expression :self conscious
    Does it means some how "selfish"?

    Vernacular buildings are never self conscious; they recede in to the Environment rather than serving as self – proclaiming design statements.

    Have a look here for a definition of "self-conscious": Self-conscious - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
