In the design and construction of a building, the facade discussion is very important. In fact, facade design and selection is one of the most important parts of construction. There are many things to consider in designing and choosing a principled facade, including the beauty of the facade, the materials needed to execute the facade, the project costs, the durability and the stability of the facade, as well as the manner and time of execution. With the progress of technology and the modernization of architecture, the decoration and building industry, the facade of the building and the methods of its implementation have also undergone changes. Among these changes, we can mention the common methods of executing dry facades. And whether this facade can be considered as a wet (traditional) facade due to its components? And why is this facade still standing? Has not found himself? In this article, the effective factors in the implementation of dry views have been identified and using the hierarchical decision-making method, the identified factors have been prioritized and the appropriate option of visible and invisible view has been selected. The results of a survey with 20 experts in the field of dry facade showed that the sub-criterion of dependence on the presence of skilled and experienced people is in the first place, then the sub-criterion of maintaining the internal energy of the building in the second place then the sub-criterion for the duration of the access to the materials that make up the facade was mentioned in the third place. The sub-criterion of access to technical knowledge is of the least importance and is superior to other dry views in the TOPSIS method and in the two-shell view.
