Smart Building Design – Launch & Introduction of the New DIAL Design Book
Conception, Planning, Realization, and Operation
Systematic design concept for smart building technology
Illustrates the breadth of digital applications and the required cooperation between trades
Overview of the most popular system solutions
How can smart technology open up new design opportunities – for the design, the execution, and the operation of buildings and for the digitalization of construction?
A hitherto unusual conception of the building as a cybernetic architectural system forms the basis of this integrated design approach. The authors – architects and engineers with extensive design experience – contribute an overview of current technical components of automation and communication systems, as well as a summary of relevant laws, standards, and guidelines.
Six example projects demonstrate completed applications at different scales, from a single-family residence to office buildings, and throughto the Elbphilharmonie concert hall – amply illustrated in text, drawings, and photos.
