Sustainability and architecture are synonymous terms. While sustainability, physically and economically, is to a large extent manifest in the habitat built form, it is the scientific temper that will lend a design methodology and process, in order to render architecture sustainable. To achieve this; a “Energy‐resource Flow – Ecological Footprint” model is suggested which can help optimize input‐output parameters and their relationship. Possible formulation of these parameters leading to a sustainability indicator is also suggested. This leads to a process of design and various actual projects in response to critical issues. Thus suggesting a new language of architecture.
