Abstract The offered paper is dedicated to consideration of the features and specific methods of cooling and ventilation in the climate of Iran, based on traditional experience of Iran and other countries of similar climate.

From author point of view it is rather actual, as currently there is a significant focus on extensive growth of housing in Iran, while climate and economical situation brings focus to native methods of cooling and ventilation with no extra energy requirement for support. So today it is quite important to accumulate the information on the experience in the way that will afford to acknowledge positive outcomes in the future.

Researches and practical examples of the New Towns in Iran are put in a basis. There are some articles of Iranian authors in the list of literature that confirms the significant role of New Towns concept in housing development in Iran.
