Incorrect methods of construction lead to a diseased environment and create an unhealthy biological system. To create a correct construction and maintain environment, materials and technologies used in buildings play an important role. To select sustainable materials and to use appropriate technology in design and construction of hotels provide more health for environment. Since these materials lead to decrease in fuel consumption to heat buildings and decrease in infusion of air pollutants and greenhouse gases. As a result, using natural resources decreases and the society approaches to the criteria of sustainability. In the other hand, by permanent increase of the inflation over the energy price, hotel officials try to provide strategies to decrease energy expenses without guess satisfying, Such as to control extra heating and to use it for supplying the needed heat in the hotel. But modern methods actualize to optimize the energy consumption. Thus, identifying and examining new methods and patterns of optimizing energy consumption is the main subject of present study in the area of sustainable architecture; these methods include using nanotechnology in constructing materials to remove destructive effects on urban environment, green roof system and double skin facade to prevent energy loss in hotels, using new smart glasses to generate urban buildings consuming energy by sun light.
