An interactive infrastructure allows users to have access to the parameters of a building in real time, potentially leading to an increased productivity, lowering of energy and material consumption, and generally greater user satisfaction and experience. The aims of this research are to investigate and design new ways for interacting with the infrastructure of buildings, and to research and develop the basis for an interactive infrastructure communication language which enables the distributed elements of the infrastructure to communicate with each other and with the users. The effectiveness of infrastructure in buildings can be significantly improved with this approach.
