Due to limitations in developing countries such as lack of proper infrastructures, modern laboratory tools and devices, limited budgets, and limited expertise and standards in specific areas of importance, developing countries mostly take different research line and approaches that need less proper infrastructure.

Therefore, this special issue is dedicated research and practice in Architecture and Urban Studies in developing countries in order to demonstrate their different nature and needs, as well as the interesting outputs and results that they offer.
