Abstract

Where do we place cables and servers for information interchange in smart buildings? This paper investigates the relationship between the organisation and structure of biological neural networks and technological networks for information interchange in buildings. The aim of this research is to identify useful organisational patterns in biological and technological networks as an approach for future network planning. This analysis compares biological and technological networks due to system behaviour, organization, environment, structure, function and form. Visionary projects will present different evolutionary stages of technical networks for information interchange in buildings. Finally two structural models of ‘complex exuberant networks’ and ‘organic backbone networks’ will be presented with a case study of the recent project R 128 by Werner Sobek. Keywords: intelligence
