The worse impact of climate change on the life system shows that the implementation of Sustainable Development method has not been optimal yet. For more than two decades, environmentalists have adopted Green Building approach to achieve energy efficiency, resource conservation, highperformance design, and less negative impacts, but this approach seems to solve environmental problems ineffectively. This indicates that the issue lies on the way to see and think of ecology as a system inappropriately. The old ecological approach uses mechanistic-reductionist paradigm with linear and partial thinking, a causal conception running one-way, constituting a method simplifying the problem and offsetting the limitations with such assumptions. Hence facing a complex natural problem, its application has a significantly inadequate probability. Inspired with the successful information system in modeling complex problems, today there is a theory offering holistic, systemic, dialogicsynthesis and non-linear thinking. This approach builds on a new paradigm of viewing and studying modern science with a focus on dynamic network systems providing feedback to achieve the processes adapting constantly to the system evolution. It models the problem close to the real phenomena as well as the broader networks covering more disciplines. Based on these facts, the research was conducted using an intensive literature review method to verify and demonstrate the use of theory called complexity theory in solving ecological problems, particularly for energy in built-environment. The results show that the complexity approach could be used to conduct a more widespread and integrated review process. The theory of complexity described and distributed the existing problems more interactively so that perhaps the current energy problems can be solved more precisely. This approach could be used for optimizing the planning globally, but it must be supported by complete data and big network that can be built based on open system and open source.
