By Wael Ahmed Shaaban Abo Neama


AbstractSustainability is based on protecting green fields and creating sustainable sites. Furthermore, increase the efficiency of water and energy consumption besides using local materials, and implement recycling programs. Projects that achieved high rates using sustainable rating system are environmentally friendly. The research objective is to stimulate all architects to protect the planet through applying sustainability criteria.
