Architects over the past half century have been trying to master nature with the aid of technology, machines and over rated energy consumption, this increased the gap between nature and the built environment. Biomimicry, where flora, fauna or entire ecosystems are emulated as a basis for design, is a growing area of research in the fields of architecture, design, engineering and business, problems .Interest in using daylighting as a major design element has varied with the social and economic forces of the time. The proposed designs are based on how some organisms (animals, plants) manage daylight and sunlight. Also the research discusses some of the broad problems that come up for consideration in planning for daylight and sunlight in office building, and to review briefly some of the steps that have been taken in advancing scientific daylighting of interior. Energy savings achieved through the use of daylight also translate into energy cost savings from reduced electricity consumption for lighting and cooling as well as from reduced needs during peak demand periods in many building.
