The combination of loss of nature contact, the traditional life environment , sudden break with the pasts and to reject the broad tradition -- which was rising on a pilot basis not without reason that rise feelings of anxiety and lack of roots in the modern humans. Many studies noted to numerous attempts to understand the nature and simulation and not to be fought, but mast be brought to the design as an active, creative force, (nature must not be rejected, but has to be embraced). The study of models that include events and forms that occur regularly in nature is the key to orientation of sustainable design, but these studies associated mainly with western architecture and its orientation ( in particular, local studies ). The orientation did not receive adequate installment from research and analysis with respect to Arabian architecture and the Traditional Arabic city specifically that there is no sufficient necessitated this research. The problem of research states that knowledge about the Traditional Arabian city relationship nature with nature imitation strategy as one of sustainable strategies ", and the objective of this research was to determine this relationship. The research shows the effectiveness of methods indicators of form that imitate the nature in the Traditional Arabic city with regard to the solutions grow from Place, firstly in terms of natural factors and cultural ( social climate ); and ecological accounting inform Design, Secondly, with regard to self— normal systems of the buildings composition, interface design, solar control, natural lighting and ventilation; in addition to recycling and their impact on imitation strategy of nature.
