Abstract As climate change begins to affect every corner of the world, renewable energy becomes increasingly important. However, although the BIPV system gets more attention with improved efficiency, its aesthetical design integration is still far behind. Therefore, first, this work analyzes the aesthetic design aspects of BIPV integrated design through previous studies and IEA studies. Secondly, 12 elements of BIPV system design aesthetic evaluation are derived. Third, these elements are applied to five selected cases to explore the improvement of aesthetic design elements for BIPV integrated design. In conclusion, the aesthetic elements of BIPV seen through the cases were expressed in an integrated design as an architectural language based on technology. Among them, color, shape, pattern, composition, and harmony were found to be important aesthetic considerations of BIPV integrated design.
