We introduce Human-Building Collaboration (HBC), a pedagogical framework for the design of next-generation smart buildings in architecture. Using the framework’s philosophy, model, and tools we show designers how to enhance smart building performance by increasing and diversifying the ways humans have to share their intelligence with that of the building. We apply this framework through design exercises and present the result of two projects: (1) a tangible wall interface for lighting co…

Human-Building Interaction: When the Machine Becomes a Building

This article consolidates Human-Building Interaction as a new research domain within HCI, exposing fundamental characteristics of HBI such as user immersion in the “machine” and extensive space and time scales, and proposes an operational definition of the domain.

Building high-level features using large scale unsupervised learning

Contrary to what appears to be a widely-held intuition, the experimental results reveal that it is possible to train a face detector without having to label images as containing a face or not.
