Wind plays a decisive and effective role in designing of space among climatic factors that these factors influence can be found in some cities and many of the buildings. However between architectural elements, openings play an important role in thermal comfort through controlling the amount of the entry and exit of air (wind).As there is most need to use appropriate air draught in hot and humid climate, especially in Bushehr climate, so providing openings in favorable wind direction to lead cool air from the sea level to city is necessary. In this paper it is tried to evaluate the design of openings in harmony with climate area of study, by analytical methods in the field of science based on climatic conditions and reliance on data collection and scientific analysis of wind movement and behavior in this climate. These analyses will cause the openings to be designed so that they meet the admission of air flow (wind)in terms of lineup, form and number; so that the air draught in building create an impact in generating proper and ideal temperature for the users of space.
