This essay will use the examples of an eco-friendly architecture, H-E-B at Muller and the city planning of Melbourne to illustrate how urban designs can contribute to sustainability.

Some architectures are designed to consume resources more efficiently aiming not to exceed the availability for satisfying future generation needs and continuing a balanced ecosystem. It seems that renewable energy is being used in some architectures in order to achieve the low consumption of resource. This is one attempt for human to try to make the buildings sustainable and ecofriendly, because it is can be noticed that the buildings may consume materials, energy and functioning the buildings needs to use energy as well(Cordero, 1992).
