Abstract

Global warming is currently a very troubling world problem, one of which is triggered by the greenhouse effect of the development of modern architecture, in the form of tall buildings. Sustainable development emerged in response to the dramatic growth in understanding that modern development practices lead to environmental and social crises throughout the world. Islam is a religion that gives mercy to the universe, has warned that humans will do damage on earth on the pretext of improving the environment. If Islam (Al Quran) has given a warning about the possibility of damage on earth due to the development of the human mind set in dealing with the environment, of course Islam also leaves an answer to solve the problem. This research will explore what guidelines in the philosophy of Islamic (architecture) are environmentally friendly and sustainable, so as to save the inhabitants of the earth from destruction because of the effects of modern development. The research method is qualitative by conducting a literature and case study. A case study conducted at the Beleq traditional settlement in Gumantar, Lombok, which survived handreds of time int the earthquake 2018, as an example of sustainable architectural planning, according to Islamic principles.
