Abstract: 
It has been more than two decades that the concept of sustainability has been gained a basic role in the global, regional, national and local development plans (urban design and planning). Therefore, many studies have tried to transform the concept of sustainability in the form of "principles and rules" of urban design and planning. Nevertheless, the scientific and professional society of urban planners in Iran has not achieved a properly formulated set of principles and rules. The first condition to reach such a goal would be considering the evolution of cities according to new information technologies, which results in globalization. Thus, globalization is considered here as a background which is affecting the cities and changing them into global cities. Then, human needs in the global cities both as a member of world society and a local society (Iran) have been considered. In the author's view, development planning will not lead to sustainability unless defined principles and rules for improving both global and local needs of society are suggested. Therefore, the result of a comparative analysis between the two sets of information:
1- global suggestions extracted from International studies,
2-Empirical ways extracted from traditional cities of Iran.
is presented. This analysis has led to two important expected results:
1- Formulation of of human needs in an ideal type global city,
2- Formulation of some common principles and rules for sustainable urban design of Iranian global cities in the future, which is based on recognized human needs.
Because of the great amount of the formulated principles and rules, only some of them which convey the biological needs as one of the most important requirments, are presented.
