The objective of this study is to present and to analyze preliminary orientation design factors in the design stage of sustainable architecture in the viewpoint of technocentrism. Typically people interpret solar energy system architecture as simply being part of a mechanical system. Yet, even before considering energy-consuming physical systems in buildings, it is very important to consider the outer parameters of sustainable design factors and the design process itself for the effective and suitable energy-saving design methodology. By analyzing the evolving phases and history of technocentrism and solar energy systems in sustainable architecture through examples and case studies, this paper focuses on and proposes preliminary orientation design factors that should be considered when starting the architectural design process in the viewpoint of technocentrism.
