Our interactive experience with the built environments, at home, at 
work, and even in public urban spaces is rapidly evolving. This is 
attributed to advancements in sensing and actuation systems that can 
integrate into the building infrastructures, coupled with the new 
environmental concerns that call for new life, work, and mobility 
styles. This change, whether gradual or sudden, evident or seamless, can 
have a signicant inuence on our everyday experiences, and thus entails 
eorts to envision possible scenarios and plan for them.

We believe that future buildings, as they would embody our digital and 
physical interactive daily experiences, should be designed and nurtured 
in a dialogue with their users, both at the individual as well as social 
levels. This concern has become of central importance in the newly 
emerging research domain of Human-Building Interaction (HBI), which 
seeks to provide a user-centred lens to addresses the physical, spatial, 
and social design opportunities and challenges that emerge as our built 
environments become immersively interactive.

In this special issue we aim to bring together contributions from the 
elds of human-computer interaction, building and urban architecture, and 
social sciences; and provide a common platform for collaboratively 
creating and sharing future 'images' of Human-Building Interaction in a 
time frame of 10-20 years.

*Topics of Interest*
  Three types of submission are invited:

• Conceptual contributions
envisioning the evolution of HBI (ideally in specific use situations 
such as home, oce, school, urban public spaces, transportation vehicles, 

• Design and evaluation of technologies and physical artifacts
to enhance human interaction with, experience in buildings. This can 
include topics such as home automation systems, comfort, spatial user 
experience, robotic homw, etc.

• Data acquisition and user modeling
applied to HBI-related opportunities and challenges

Submission procedure
