Construction of modern high-rise concrete buildings meets the need for more accommodation of people and their demands to live and work in cities. The use of new technologies such as nano particles in construction can be one of the effective factors determining the form of a high-rise building in terms of architectural features such as performance, strength and durability, and safety issues. This study aims to examine nano concrete features in construction of high-rise buildings with appropriate form by using peripheral technologies and considering the cultural, social, and regional contents which are the objectives of sustainable development. On the other hand, some appropriate recommendations are made in this regard.
