Developments resulting from globalization have led to structural changes in the urban body of most countries in the world. Modern interventions, such as the implementation of comprehensive urban plans, road widening projects, and the creation of new urban land uses, have had adverse and irreversible consequences, both in terms of spatial architecture and in terms of spatial bone scaling and urban physical organization. Is. In recent decades, the principle of sustainability and its impact on urban life has become one of the main goals in development programs and plans at the global, national, and regional levels. Numerous studies have been conducted to transform the concept of sustainability into principles, rules, and practical solutions in urban development planning. Given the importance of sustainability in the development goals of global cities, the main perspective of the study is to emphasize the existence of a direct and one-to-one relationship between human needs and acquired fundamental criteria for sustainable cities. In other words, the wide range of social, economic, cultural, and ecological needs that are considered to be achieved or moving towards sustainability can be defined and formulated in the form of human needs in the urban environment. The purpose of this paper is to examine the theoretical issues related to the concept of sustainable urban design and use it as a tool to critique the experience of modern urban design in new cities from the perspective of sustainable development and environmental considerations.
