Due to resource scarcity and worsening pollution on the environment, more and more people are attracted by green design. Some designs not only focus on energy saving, but also attach great importance to conveying green concept. Based on the case study of Japanese design and focusing on three aspects, material selection, structural design and style orientation, this article attempts to analyze the design works that reflect prominently the green concept. Therefore, people can deeply sense and appreciate the concept of environmental protection and eventually are beneficial educated and directed.
