  • Department of Computer Science
One of the main areas of architecture is buildings design, and we will focus on the impact of pervasive computing in this area. The breakthrough of the Internet has triggered a significant increase in what is often called intelligent buildings 1  in recent years. Due to development in pervasive computing we are on the brink of an even greater increase: IT components and systems for intelligent buildings will change from being proprietary, specialized solutions with a narrow market to be part of the developing mainstream mass market for pervasive computing. This paper will illustrate  the development of pervasive computing with examples of from industrial design and, intelligent  buildings, and interactive workspaces. The examples relate mainly to our Laboratory for Interactive Work spaces (http://daimi.au.dk/ispace) but also to other activities our Center for Pervasive Computing (CfPC) at University of Aarhus.
