The article offers information on the relation between ecology and architecture. The value of personal human relations into architecture is the greatest source of intimate art. Social contract theory of society or by interaction to the world and human nature, one can produce a functional idea. It is argued that architecture is shaped by the ecosystem and counterbalance found in public life and ecology. Architecture is created by the insistence on the primacy of the free and autonomous human. It is mentioned that life is a property of ecosystem and not of organism.
