Industrialization and Urbanization has triggered the movement of population shift from rural areas to urban areas. Thus, one can easily estimate the humongous pressure on the urban areas in terms of infrastructure and living spaces that will radically change the urban skyline. The constraint of space led to the verticality of buildings and that altered the silhouette of the cities not just in regions but globally. One cannot deny the boom of high rise buildings and their role in the urban landscape. The human civilization of the 21st century is already facing challenges ranging from global conflicts to resource shortage, from pollution to urban sprawl. In such a storm swirling situation, the only mode of survival and way forward is Sustainable Development.
