Green design helps to drive a sustainable circular economy so that the cost of living is drastically reduced and the quality of life is improved. Green architecture has been more beneficial to the built environment, adding value to the building and the lives of the inhabitants, and improving the quality of life of the people who use it. The study's objective is to develop a sustainable circular economy in Nigeria through the use of green architectural design practices. This study employed the use of SWOT analysis in analyzing case studies of buildings that employed the use of green architecture to achieve a more sustainable economy in the region where the buildings are located, the study also analyzed recently written literature on green architecture and circular economy. The study found that the use of green architecture improves health, encourages a healthy environment with cleaner air, increases the purchasing power of its residents, and enhances sustainability in the economy of a region via energy-saving mechanisms in the building which reduces the overall cost of maintenance in the building, reduces the purchasing power of materials and enhances the region's net productivity. It was recommended that green architecture be practised more in the area of study to improve the general health and lifespan of both the structure and people while promoting a more sustainable circular economy through the use of sustainable materials and construction techniques in the building industry.
