One of the greatest concerns of the international community is destruction of sources of energy. Architecture and urbanization as efficient and effective factors in conserving this resource can contribute to survival of existence. Sustainable architecture is a method in designing which deals with reduction in consumption of energy sources and using them optimally. This fact has been the focus of attention of many professional societies. What leads to human survival on this planet is correct and appropriate use of environment. Clever use of these resources can lead to sustainable development and long life of future humans. Paying close attention to the concept of environment sustainability in architecture and urbanization could prepare appropriate conditions for achieving this goal.
