In the world, both the ecological balance and the health of the people are endangered with the increase of environmental problems and disasters. At the bottom of the environmental problems lies the use of energy resources far from sustainability and without consideration of nature. However, the needs of today must be met without jeopardizing for the needs of the next generation, which is achieved through the provision of environmental sustainability. Avoiding depletion in the natural sources and ensuring environmental sustainability is possible with saving energy and protecting natural resources. Buildings play an important role in energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions worldwide. Therefore, disaster relief housing with district scale solutions is considered to be potential area to increase energy efficiency and decrease environmental impacts throughout their life span.
