Doubtless, architecture is one of the invaluable and profitable resources of countries holding the necessary infrastructure of the industry or seeking to build them. Tourism is a complex of phenomena and relations coming from interactions among tourists, capitals, hosting governments and communities, scientific institutions, transformation firms, and hosting and control of the tourists. One of the lucrative tourist sources is artistic and architectural phenomena which stand for the civilization of each country as civilization is a combination of symbols and historical and cultural revelations that are evidences for fort and identity of a nation and their persistence among other nations and civilizations. One of these revelations and symbols is historical houses and textures that have mostly been museums or places of interest that are restored today. In these buildings, Iranian art and architecture reveals itself from the past and demonstrates its mutual effect. Taking care of cultural identity in building, least use of natural resources and life qualities, this architecture meets a lot of principles which are financially efficient. The aim of this paper is to introduce the patterns of sustainable architecture in old Iranian architecture; it also examines old houses particularly Jalil Arazi house in Ghazvin which is a bright example of sustainable architecture. Climate, ecology, atmosphere, building’s body, appropriate form and beautiful design are some of the main factors in sustainable architecture. That’s why Iranian architects have been welcome to anything looking good to the eye and have revealed it in traditional architecture; some of these visual scenes include patterns of decorative designs, stucco, glass works, sash windows, brickworks, etc. This paper has implemented on biblical and archival method by survey and is provided the results as a paper.
