[development] Why does Drupal require so much memory?

I'm getting the following error on a site,
"Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 20971520 bytes exhausted (tried  
to allocate 1077617 bytes) in...sites/all/modules/views-5.x-1.6/ 
views_cache.inc on line 146"

The site basically has a content type with many computed and other  
fields, but no images or large files etc. So I'm wondering why it  
requires so much memory. I presume it's something to do with caching?

I'd asked the host to increase the max packets allowed and they made  
it 20M, but that still doesn't work. So I've requested it to be  
increased to 32M. But I'm concerned that in the future, I'll run into  
the same problem.
Is there another a way to fix this?

Kind Regards,
