English abstract:
This paper addresses the necessary conditions for the emergence of cogitative buildings. A cogitative building is defined here as one that possesses a multi-layered complex representation of its context (site conditions, micro-climate), its physical constituents (building elements, components, systems), and its processes (occupancy, presence and actions, indoor climate controls). Moreover, a cogitative building can dynamically update this represenation and use it for virtual experiments toward regulation of its systems and states. The paper presents a summary of the required key technologies and the related state of their development, together with general reflections on problems and prospects of cogitative buildings.
