Shelter is a basic human need. Building and habitats are designed and constructed to fulfill this. Since the industrial revolution, the world has witnessed incalculable technological achievements, economic and population growth, and ever increasing use of natural resources. Increased urbanization as seen today is a result of this overall growth. The green cover and ground water resources have been forced to give way to these rapidly developing urban structures. Energy is another major resource that is being consumed indiscriminately to meet the power demand for air-conditioning, lighting and equipment. Most conventional practitioners of modern design and construction, find it easier to develop buildings in a vacuum-as if nature, place and context do not exist. Most of today's architectural expressions demonstrate human dominance over nature. Inefficient and overuse of limited natural resources is evidently rampant. On the other hand, sustainability demands restraint over use of natural resources. Sustainability in the sector of building design is a complex concept of multidisciplinary character. Its realization requires an integrated design approach involving all key stakeholders in the process of designing, planning and constructing buildings.
