The growing interest in the Internet of Things and in technological, connected, and computing-enhanced spaces such as smart homes (Figure 1), intelligent environments, and responsive environments connects interaction design more and more with architecture. Everyday spaces such as home environments are increasingly filled with computing and smart objects. This trend of ubiquitous computing, as envisioned and pioneered by Mark Weiser at Xerox PARC, has since worked as a basis for designing smart environments—across people, objects, and spaces. Many researchers have further investigated how the flows and patterns of activities in a space can guide the design of interactions with…
