The article examines the main objective factors affecting the development of housing construction in Iran. In terms of population per unit area, Iran ranks 21st in the world. However, the density of the population varies by territory, this is because only 30% of the territory has a relatively sufficient amount of water to provide the population. The population is unevenly distributed. It is characteristic that in different regions of Iran the urban population is different in its specific weight. So, in the Tehran region is 27.2%, and in Chakharmakhal and Bakhtiari - 0.87% of the total population. Population growth stimulates the development of cities and will require an increase in the number of dwellings, as well as improving their quality. As you know, the climate of Iran has a pronounced change of seasons, and different geographical regions of Iran differ in their climatic conditions. Particular attention should be given to architectural and construction recommendations that affect the design of medium-height houses in seismically hazardous areas, especially in Central Iran. At present, the state policy of Iran in the field of housing construction is carried out in three directions - three types of construction: free housing, mixed construction, social housing.
