- In urban areas, we suffer from environment problems, i.e., heat island and air/water pollution. They are due to that the impervious area increases, i.e., building and pavement and pervious area decreases, i.e., park and garden. This phenomenon can result in increased financial capital and wasting oil energy. To solve the abovementioned problems, we propose Sicyos angulatus and harvested rainwater to apply to architecture as low energy technologies. Sicyos angulatus and harvested rainwater are achieved through increased efficient energy use, in conjunction with decreased energy consumption. Actually, Sicyos angulatus has been designated as hazardous plant and it is difficult to eradicate in South Korea. However, its branched tendrils and broad leaves can be used for the control of temperature in the urban area. Small scale houses with Sicyos angulatus and harvested rainwater are constructed. Actually, the harvested rainwater is used supplied outside garden. The experiments are performed to observe whether vegetation and harvested rainwater can reduce the indoor temperature in the house. The result suggests as follows; 1) vegetation is grow and block well a light-wave, 2) indoor room moisture content constantly maintains and 3) room temperature in indoor with vegetation decrease compared to that without vegetation
