As far as the reduction of fossil fuel reserves and environmental degradation in building houses are concerned, contemporary architects use other energy sources to create thermal comfort. Passive system is the most efficient way in which the needs of buildings thermal heat, without using the fossil energy, mechanical force and renewable energy sources like solar and wind energy, are met. Compatibility with environment, using context and area potentials to reduce fossil energy consumption and environmental destructive effects are the main advantages of these systems. Considering the temperature principles used in different elements of Iranian architecture this article reviews the operation of architectural elements which were compatible with the context in traditional Iranian architecture by focusing on the role of architect in environmental health and conservation. This study further offers solutions for creating thermal comfort by using descriptive content analysis in order to describe passive system principles associated with each of the above elements. Additionally, this research illustrates traditional architectural elements in terms of form and fabric in correspondence with modern elements as a method for mitigating climate changes.
