Green buildings have caught increasing attention in the global context. For green office building (GOB), the design should satisfy both the natural and working environmental considerations. Noticing that while a wide range of eco-technologies have been applied in existing GOBs, comparatively less than enough attentions have been put on the art performance of such buildings, this paper introduces and discusses how transparency, as an important visual language in modern architecture, can be used as a tool to bridge and emphasize the inseparable connection between art and technology in the architectural design area. The purpose of this paper is not only to explore and discuss new concepts regarding design of GOBs, but also to provide references for sustainable design in a larger perspective.
