Wide conception of «zero» eco-buildings and of «zero» ecocities with ecological infrastructure is based on three principles: «zero» interference in the nature, «zero» consumption of consumable resources from state networks, «zero» emission of pollution. «Zero» interference in the nature is the «zero» built-up area of buildings; it includes the minimal interference to natural circulation of matter, to migrations of animals; it signifies the sensory likeness to nature (use of sensory ecology – visual, odor and sound ecology); gardening of buildings, etc. «Zero» consumption of consumable resources includes: energy economy; renewable electric and thermal energy generation; natural ventilation and air-conditioning without energy consumption; decrease of expenses for internal illumination; reduction of water consumption, etc. «Zero» emission of pollution includes «zero» life cycle of buildings, recycling of waste products, use of ecological and recycled materials, the «zero» water drain, etc. The basis of «zero» eco-buildings and ecocities creation is architectural-building ecology with ecological infrastructure (it is complex of natural resources, constructions and systems, providing support of environment of human life at all levels - from the whole country up to cities and to separate buildings). Environment of life and environments of «zero» buildings and cities must be subject to all-embracing ecologization. All-embracing ecologization is system of upbringing of ecological thinking for respective activity and for use of ecological decisions based on ecological postulates, ecological philosophy and ethics, principles of sustainable building, adoption into account ethnical and geographical traits, social-psychological and social-economical features of inhabitants in city. This ecologization is the hierarchical system (from global up to local).
