The reduction of energy consumption by using daylight in architecture is the main purpose of this study. In general, light is the most visible renewable energy. An important key question is that what are the ways for energy saving specially in lighting. More importantly, how much energy the buildings dwellers should save and how much others should save. Since recently there is very little attention on the use of daylight and solar energy. Now, the question is that whether the natural light of day can be used for different tasks inside of space and daylight can be regarded as a factor for energy saving? The answer is that the natural light of day can be effectively used for different purposes and in the most cases it brings energy saving. In addition, it ends up with satisfaction of the people in their life and work environment. It does not mean that light can be used for any purpose and natural daylight is one of several factors that a designer has. As it becomes popular, it can be used effectively and desirable. Application means "correct use" which it cannot be denied and it forms the basis of this study and in conclusion, it is hoped that in the future, we see the use of natural light in buildings as a quite effective element as our ancestors had done.
