Abstract: It is understandable that recycled materials and clean energy technologies have a lot to do with green sustainable architecture. Therefore, it may be expected that nowadays, contemporary architects emphasize on the use of recycled materials, smart grids and clean energy technologies more than ever. Suggesting a guideline for the optimum usage of recycled materials, considering the required materials in construction industry is the purpose of this research. Therefore, the most crucial questions of this research are: 1- What are the most important energy saving criteria regarding to environmental sustainability in future sustecture? 2- How reuses of recycled materials affect environmental aspects? The method in this research is a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods in which the approach is to solve the problem and answer the questions of construction industry and especially saving clean energy technology. The results of the paper show that usage of recycled materials is not competitive in market-price although it is so fruitful for achieving goals and objectives of green architecture. The results indicate that future sustecture is in need of reuse of recycled materials especially in contemporary architecture of developing countries.
