Since the middle of the 1980’s the concept of sustainability has become a guiding principle for human settlements at all levels of governance. The design decisions that are made without regard to the environment, are potentially devastating. Therefore, a design approach should be maintained for creating the buildings that have to be responsive to environmental forces by investigating problems in different contexts and at different scales. Within this context, Benny Farm Settlement in Montreal is searched as a case study which houses low and middle income people*.
