The competitiveness indicators of the tourism sector have been of great importance to international institutions for the role played by this sector in the economy. The appearance of architectural intelligence and information technology and communications has also led to increased competition in tourism projects. Here is the problem of research, heritage buildings suffered a lot of low competitiveness, since it does not rely on the smart system, and overlapping the competencies of the various ministries and lack of coordination among them, which adversely affected the competitiveness of tourism associated with buildings Heritage. As a result, the research aims to develop mechanisms to gain a competitive advantage by introducing intelligence as a tool that increases the competitiveness of heritage buildings ,The research is based on a common strategy between the descriptive approach and the analytical approach to the case study and the evaluation of the experience of introducing the characteristics of architectural intelligence as a competitive advantage to improve the efficiency of the heritage buildings, which is reflected in the visitors experience and the rate of visit to the heritage building. Research Objective To develop mechanisms to increase the competitiveness of heritage buildings when rehabilitated by providing architectural features to enhance the efficiency of heritage buildings to achieve tourist competitiveness through high visits to the building and to provide good visitors experience.Research problem The lack of achievement of heritage buildings for tourism competitiveness as a result of the low efficiency, which affects the provision of good visitors experience and the rate of visit to the building, and the impact on the economic and development benefits of the surrounding areas.Research Methodology: The research methodology consists of combined strategy as following: 1st :use Descriptive method To identify the concept of competitiveness of the tourism sector and Through identifying the concept of competitiveness of the tourism sector and the mechanisms of achieving the advantage of passive and identify each generation of generations of architectural intelligence features. Learn about the way to assess the intelligence of heritage buildings after the introduction of intelligence as a competitive advantage using the features of intelligence and the method of smart building index 2nd : use analytical method through the extraction of the features of the methodology to impart the features of architectural intelligence, through the analysis of a global heritage building that collected more than one generation and the impact on the annual visit rate of the building.
