Nowadays population growth and increase of land cost have made it inevitable for the cities to construct tall building or vertical development or growth. Among the advantages of vertical expansion of the cities are saving cultivable land to supply needed food for increasing population, reducing environmental destruction due to reduced construction on natural land, reduce in transportation and urban traffic as well as reduce in energy consumption and air pollution caused by horizontal expansion of the cities. This paper examines relationship between high-performance tall building architecture and environment applying innovative technology. Research method of present investigation is descriptive. It is concluded that the future of the built environment depends on the methods and techniques used by engineers and architects to design sustainable environment and intelligent building.
