Since the beginning of creation, the human interaction produced a series of changes within the environment, so there should be what regulates these interactions. That leaded to appearance of a set of unwritten regulations imposed by the rulers and the monks in human life until the revelation of celestial legislations. After that the man-made (written) laws and acts was immerged. Laws and regulations was put not only to regulate the relationship of man-to-man, but also to organize the man's relationship with the surrounding environment i.e. the physical side such as the city. The legislation and regulations governing this aspect were varied in different civilizations. It produced variety of codes in the formation of the urban fabric of those cities. The differences and contrast were a true reflection of such legislation and laws. It is noted that the urban environment in the Egyptian cities suffers from a lack of laws and regulations governing urbanization to maintain the quality of life. Most of the legislation and the requirements of building currently applicable in Egypt are focused on (building heights, land use, and density of structures) without paying any attention to the surrounding environment or population requirements. They did not pay attention to the evolution of social life, technological developments, and urban changes associated to trying to achieve functional and humanitarian needs through make some adjustments by population depending on personal preferences. Thus, a need to legislations founded on sound science bases to provide a healthy and safe environment and to maintain the quality of the building environment at our Egyptian cities. Therefore, it was necessary to study the legislations that organize the urbanization and to monitor its shortcomings in considering the quality of life inside the urban environment as a response to the reality of political and societal changes and amendments of laws and regulations to conform with the principles of the Egyptian Constitution of 2014, such as the foundations of social justice, sustainability, and equality principles to achieve the quality of life in Egyptian society. If we have such principles stipulated in the constitution without good management of legislation, laws and requirements to activate of these rights, we will not be able to guarantee the quality of life in cities. Therefore, this paper aims to create a model for the management of urbanization to achieve the quality of life.
