摘要:Those outside the construction industry often wonder how inanimate building materials can be intelligent. The rapid evolution of information technology has led to the development of system that can measure, evaluate and respond to change. The concept of intelligent building started in early 1980 s in the USA. Today it has become a house-hold name in the developed world. Intelligent buildings are designed and managed to meet the changing environmental, business and human needs. They create environments which enable their users to achieve their objectives while allowing efficient management of resources with minimum lifetime cost. The paper defines and explains the concept and origin of intelligent buildings; it also explains the benefit of intelligent buildings in Nigeria. It goes ahead to discuss the fear of adopting intelligent building in Nigeria. The paper concludes by suggesting that school of architecture should as a matter of urgency incorporate intelligent building in their curriculum.
