In the continuum of evolution and adaptation of living organisms, ranging from microorganisms to human beings, there are certain cycles of time that carry with its cardinal changes that human beings must face and find the best possible harmony of eligibility. The new millennium brings with it a new lifestyle as a result of a number of determining factors, driven by technology development and the phenomenon of globalization. Therefore, we have come into a situation where a number of questions need to be raised about the necessity of redefining many daily life habits. The study presented in this paper investigated the architectural design process to consult with nature, where to many urban structures are being ruined in the name of sustainable architecture. We are constantly experiencing original situations known by intuition, but we have forgotten them, remembering the same thing can be ten times faster. Similar cases also occur on the global level, reflected in the world market, when in the context of globalization one can at a working table make a decision on a part of the global market, and thus directly affect the world price, which affects us too! The current and possible degraded state of environment in the name of urbanization are not acceptable, even more, when the sources of natural capacities are being ruined.
