The purpose of this study is utilizing the central courtyard of traditional architecture in modern architecture. Since the nineteenth century, the traditional architecture has been more taken into account. From this time period, the sixties century is significantly important. The studies on the traditional architecture were conducted and followed in this period with the new objective and attitude. Until the early sixties century, most of the studies on the traditional architecture were briefly based on the a few enthusiasts' individual interests and goals, but after those years, the studies on the traditional architecture were considered with a new perspective and at a greater level by the architectural researchers because of the modern architecture development and appearance of its deficiencies and uncertainty about this type of architecture. Central courtyard with its valuable features not only does not impose damages to the environment, but also is compatible with it in such a surprising way. This special structure has expanded its own valuable properties in every structure and then in urban texture of desert areas such as Yazd. The reckless elimination of central courtyard rich model, the traditional architecture will lose enormous advantages. The lack of this valuable model and its reasonless elimination from the contemporary traditional architecture on the one hand and the lack of replacing the appropriate model for it on the other hand have made the numerous hidden and apparent damages to the body of contemporary architecture. This study explores the structure of central courtyard in traditional architecture as well as the advantages of this symbol of traditional architecture in line with the sustainable architecture and provides the investigation for its application of the need for contemporary modern architecture. The aim of such these studies is not to conserve and repeat the previous forms and imitate them, but to use their patterns and experiences and create new forms which follow the concepts.
