Architecture should be an integrated concept in the strategic planning from micro to macro level.The optimal development is the one that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs that looks to balance different, and often competing, needs against an awareness of the environmental, social and economic limitations that we face as a society.

All too often, development is driven by one particular need, without fully considering the wider or future impacts, which does not help in the future. We are already seeing the damage this kind of approach can cause, from large-scale financial crises caused by irresponsible banking, to changes in global climate resulting from our dependence on fossil fuel-based energy sources. The longer we pursue this approach, the more frequent and severe its consequences are likely to become.

Architectural design is important to every aspect of our lives. It informs the places in which we live, work, learn, heal and gather. The belief should be that even our clients are designers in their own right.Hence Architecture cannot be dealt at a particular level but be thought parallely at all levels as it has an wider and greater impact on humanity .

Architecture has to be good understanding of a wide range of subjects from physical geography, through to social science, and an appreciation for disciplines, such as real estate development, urban economics, political economy and social theory.

Uncontrolled growth for urbanisation denotes a diffusion of the influence of urban centres to a rural hinterland and also moving to cities, changing from agriculture to other pursuits common to cities. The causes for the increasing trend of construction development would be industrialization which inturn has effected urbanization. It has expanded the employment opportunities. Rural people have migrated to cities on account of better employment opportunities. Which in turn increases the demand for unthought construction development.

The positive impact could be employment opportunities in urban centres, transport and communication facilities , educational facilities, increase in the standard of living.

Urbanization can yield positive effects only  if it takes place up to a desirable limit. Extensive urbanisation or indiscriminate growth of cities may result in adverse effects.

Rapid rise in the new trend of urban development by developers, is leading to many problems like increasing slums, decrease in standard of living in urban areas, also causing environmental damage all over the world.The way out of the damage could be an sustainable and thoughtful, sustainable development. Hence sustainable development is about finding better ways of doing things, both for the future and the present. We might need to change the way we work and live now.The way we approach urban development affects all strata of people. The impacts of our decisions as a society have very real consequences for people’s lives. Poor planning of communities, for example, reduces the quality of life for the people who live in them. Sustainable development provides an approach to making better decisions on the issues that affect all of our lives . In the right hands, urban development can determine or at least influence the destiny of a city and may be a turning point for its existence and optimistic future and better world for humans.
