SOHRABI, Sharareh. Design Criteria of Multi-Storey Residential Buildings in context of Ecological Architecture, Master’s Thesis, Ankara, 2015. Along with Industrial-Revolution, transportation, manufacturing, operating-information technology improvements has facilitated human-life. In industrialized societies, from the beginning of the twentieth century, unplanned artificial environment along with the formation of intense population growth in urban areas has caused serious damages in the natural environment. The damage over the environment caused by developed and/or developing countries, is proportional to the immaturity of environmental science. In the period after 1970 environmental pollution have reached to serious dimensions and become a threat to human-life, the subject began to be discussed in the international arena and many important steps have been taken on the matter up to now. During this period design-decisions are formed in accordance with the ecological design criteria in building and urban scale which play an active role in ensuring the sustainability of the environment. Sustainability, has defined as the continuation of living conditions which is acceptable for all living creatures, has taken its place in economy, social-life and the environment in interact. Energy and natural resources consumption in the use-phase of buildings under construction lead to deterioration of the ecological balance. Increasing buildingdensity in urban areas due to the reduction of the area for building construction, it has brought an increase vertically. An inverse relation exists between users and building’s area which demonstrates the amount of effectiveness of multi-story buildings on environment. A large portion of energy consumption in multi-story buildings has been generated from heating-cooling, ventilation and lighting systems. This research contains analysis of the factors which are impressive in enegy conservation of the multi-storey buildings, in echological architecture context, according to their residential structures.
