About this book

Smart Technologies and Design for Healthy Built Environment connects smart technology to a healthy built environmentthat builds upon the sustainable building movement.It provides an overall summary of the state-of-the-art technologies that are applied in the built environment. The book covers a broad spectrum of smart technology categories ranging from dynamic operability, energy efficiency, self-regulating and self-learning systems, and responsive systems. The foreseeable challenges that are associated with smart technologies are discussed and outlined in the book.

Firstly, this book provides a snapshot of state-of-the-art smart technologies being applied in the built environment. It covers a broad spectrum of smart technology categories, ranging from dynamic operability, energy efficiency, self-regulating and self-learning systems, to responsive systems. Secondly, this book provides in-depth analysis of the four primary components of health (biological, physical, physiological and psychological); their effects on wellbeing and cognitive performance are introduced as well. Thirdly, it connects smart technologies to those health-influencing factors by reviewing three completed smart building projects. This book can also serve as a basis for education and discussion among professionals and students of diverse backgrounds who are interested in smart technologies, smart building, and healthy building.

Smart Technologies and Design for Healthy Built Environment serves as the basis for education and discussions among professionals and students who are interested in smart technologies, smart building and healthy building, as it bridges the gap between smart technologies and a healthy built environment. The book also provides a foundation for anyone who is interested in the impact of smart technology on the health of built environment.

About the authors

Ming Hu is an Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, University of Maryland, USA. She teaches technology courses which focus on the integration of architectural design with structural, materials, and building performance assessment.

She has an extensive background in high-performance building design and life cycle assessment and have engaged in applied building technology research for over 16 years.Her research activities centers on questions of how, and why, sustainable building design and construction affect energy/resource conservation, environmental and human health, and to understand how the (smart) technologies might be employed to reduce the impact from buildings.

Professor Hu has been published in over fifty research paper, and has lectured widely in North America, Europe, and Asian. She is a visiting research fellow at the Tampere University in Finland as a Fulbright recipient (2020-21). Her first book, titled Net Zero Building: Predicated and Unintended Consequences, was released in April 2019 through Routledge. Her second book: Healthy Built Environment and Smart technologies will be published in Summer 2020.

She is the board member of the Architecture Research Center Consortium (ARCC), and the Building Technology Educator Society (BTES).She also served on the National Committee of the International Code Council and on the Maryland Green Building Council.
