The understanding of the 20th century architecture, has a big responsibility in achieving current unsustainable result of the environment. We may think of cars and factories as the most obvious enemies of the environment, but buildings consume more than half the energy used worldwide. The aim of this presentation is to obtain a general exploration of one of the most complex and problematic issues facing the humanity over the last and current centuries – that is, how to construct a human habitat in harmony with nature. Modern Architecture tend to confuse, rather than reinforce, a progressive image of earth-friendly architecture. So, initially it is essential to rethink briefly about modern architecture.
