The rise of ubiquitous computing leads to a convergence between the areas of architectural design and HCI.
Human-computer interaction is a type of human-artifact interaction, and its research is characterized by analysing human behavior, cognitive processes and task structures. Buildings can also be understood as artifacts and people interact with them in numerous ways. We believe that the methodological toolbox of HCI researchers/practitioners can be valuable for understanding the challenges of designing buildings that meet users’ needs. Conversely, architectural knowledge is essential for HCI professionals and researchers designing interactive technologies for architectural settings. This workshop will bring together these communities to explore the benefits of architecture envisioned as integral to an expanded CHI community and identify fundamental differences, similarities and synergies between design and research approaches that use architecture in different ways in HCI.
