    Architecture is always faced with the problems of the world (like global warming) and should always refer to the sustainable development. But on its way to search for identity towards sustainable development, conflicts are often occurs in it. This study aimed to explore how panopticism principles can assist in disciplining people for better sustainable development. Michel Foucault's disciplinary power is a mechanism to regulate the behavior of individuals in society. This discipline can be done by adjusting the organization of space (through architecture, urban planning, etc.), time, human activity and human behavior and requires a complex surveillance system. Foucault asserts that the discipline is not power, but discipline is an easy way to apply power and connects this with the discipline of history, the origin of society and space. Furthermore, panoticon expressed by Foucault is not a prison, but it is a model that summarizes the characteristics of the community based on the discipline of power. Foucault wrote principles of supervision and disciplinary powers with utilitarian logic of early capitalism called panopticism. Panopticism space is based on Foucault's ideas about space that emphasizes the power of discipline and the power of human influence. The method used in this study was the method of criticism and logical arguments. The discussion begin from the panopticism discussion in the history of architecture followed by discussion sustainable development, then a critique of society and sustainable development, and ultimately how this panopticism entered as a principle that can be applied in the sustainable development. The result for the society to be more discipline and concerned about sustainable development, it is necessary to have discipline panopticism in sustainable spatial development
