Abstract: 

This article presents a part of the author's study of nanotechnology on the future of architecture. First, it considers the scientific aspect of architecture and clarifies the relationship between the subject to architecture, by a survey in fixed principles and concepts of architecture and words of great architects. In the end it presents the examples of the use of this technology and introduces the qualities that can be achieved by the architects in the future. In addition through this study they explained the importance of this subject by considering the positive and negative effects of this technology. They predict that nanotechnology will change the architectural principles and it will remove some limitations and shortages such as standards and untransformative materials like brick and concrete. When scientists are examining things at the nanoscale, they find that materials operate differently than they do in our familiar world. Different electrical and physical interactions come into play at the nanoscale, so scientists need an understanding of many different disciplines when working in nanotechnology. A fusion of chemistry, physics and engineering, nanotechnology is the manipulation and assembly of material with atomic precision. Traditionally, products are constructed by cutting or etching away material from substances to make them smaller. Nanotechnology takes something small and builds it from the ground up by adding to it. By developing materials at the molecular level, scientists can create new forms of matter that are stronger and more elastic, refract light differently, have different electrical characteristics, and even respond to their environment. These unique properties will help scientists use nanotechnology to generate scientific breakthroughs in electronics, life sciences and materials. Nanotechnology solutions are already found in a range of commercial products. Nano clays improve the physical characteristics of plastics and provide ultra-hard coatings for eyeglasses. Life scientists are already using nanotechnology to advance healthcare. Unusual forms of matter called "quantum dots" help diagnose disease and discover new drugs. Nanotechnology can remove worthless stuff and pollution from the environment, also it can dramatically prevent to waste resources that, it itself merely can cause to decrease the final price of the most of products processes and steps of operations. Nano technology is not potentially good or bad, like all developed technologies in the world, but to what makes it useful or useless, is the way that human applies it, in his life. So it is clear that, the more technology is capable and applicable, the more it needs to be controlled, in order to be applied in the best way for people and promotes the quality of their life. If we don't correctly control nanotechnology or if we use it in the wrong way, it can cause to irrecoverable outcome. Although this technology will indicate a new ways, we should be aware of environmental problems, try to reduce the pollution through green products and decrease the use of diminished sources and energies. We should try to study carefully the potential effects of different use of nano particles on human's health and environment, in order to control its harmful effects in the future.
