The case study was analysed through investigating the different aspects of sustainable development in the four phases of development of the steel.

In Pursuit of an Honest Architecture: A Manifesto Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski deconstruct Modernism in "Narrative Architecture," their latest book. It is increasingly apparent that human activities are not suitable for sustaining a healthy global environment.

From energy development to resource extraction to use of land and water, humans are having a devastating effect on the earth’s ability to sustain human societies and quality lives. Many approaches to changing the negative environmental consequences of human activities focus on one.
