In recent years, the word sustainability has invaded all areas of knowledge, taking part in the current lexicon of a broad spectrum of disciplinary action.
Although redundancy is present when connecting development and sustainability, the fact remains that the application of the latter to fields of knowledge related to the humanities and in articulating the planning, to urban planning and urban design, comes in a way to highlight something that for years has been away from the methodological process of these areas, and whereas it is mismanagement, especially when we are dealing with urban centres that have grown over the last twenty years so overwhelming, with more or less planning, more or less sensitivity to environmental issues and the vision of an integrated society in their midst.
