Abstract. Culture heritage provides us an automatic sense of unity and belonging, which allows us to better understand previous generation and history of where we come from. The preservation of heritage is closely linked to the culture of society where culture plays a vital role in urban, economic and social development. The research aim is to overview the main principles of green architecture and identify the main heritage conservation approaches as a theoretical approach to identify the most suitable conservation approach that applies all the principles of the green architecture. The chosen approach will be applied on our case study “Vancouver city in Canada” to verity our conclusion from the theoretical study.
