Dhaka has experienced high economic growth escorted by rapid urbanization. Physical infrastructures of Dhaka city are growing day by day with the swiftness of rapid urbanization. It revealed that most of the physical infrastructures such as buildings of Dhaka city did not follow the characteristics of sustainability thereby resulting in significant threats to the well-being of the people. In this perspective, ensuring sustainability in buildings is a time-worthy issue in Bangladesh. In this article, we have tried to address the issues of sustainable building and propose a sustainable and smart design which will swathe the criteria of environment, social and economic sustainability of Dhaka city. If the majority of the objectives of proposed design are met, the building will be more probable to meet the changing requirements of the settlers and make it a more sustainable, protected, secure, efficient and environmentally friendly place to stay.
