Abstract. There is no doubt that one of the most controversial issues and challenges of the present century throughout the world is the issue of energy. In general, there are many ways to preserve energy resources. The most common method is through a culture of savings. The latest idea to save energy is using new equipment and systems that have been considered for this purpose. Intelligent systems in the building’s façade are a part of this method. Since the thermal shell of the building is responsible for the waste of energy in buildings, focusing on the sector could help to reduce energy consumption. Because their design, the shell of the building (i.e. windows, walls and doors) is in direct contact with the outside world and has an important influence on thermal comfort and visual comfort and energy consumption of the building. Facade design of educational buildings, especially schools, is a different challenge than the facades of other buildings. Given that education in schools is smart, it fits better that the educational environment be smart as well. Therefore in this article we are introducing the smart systems and materials and at the end, a new smart system will be introduced to be used in the façade of the smart schools based on temperate and humid climate. The method used in this research is survey method and the resources are documents.
