It is tempting to borrow the ancient view, and imagine the built environment as poised between the four ancient elements, such as: earth, water, air, fire, and interact with each other. At present such interaction is largely destructive rather than sympathetic. However, if the interaction were to become focus, either the building or the built environment, then it might be possible to reinstate these relationships around a sustainable and appropriate level of technology. The objective of this paper is to describe the destruction of the system in the planet, downgraded of the quality of natural resources and how far architecture can contribute on them. The conclusion will discuss on green approach in architecture design. Keywords: air, water, fire, earth, green architecture, green approach.
