This paper also describes the sustainability concept in relation with architecture; and how its principles could generate design methods and design strategies to solve several problems in architecture and urbanism projects for current and future requirements, in several sustainability aspects, such as: economy, society and environment. This paper also expounds that, in México, it is necessary to expand the laws and standards regarding architecture, because the current laws are not adequate to meet the necessary standards in relation to architecture with these characteristics.
