Smart building technologies are turning our homes and offices into intelligent organisms. IOT, Artificial Intelligence, Building ontologies and BIM are mapping the way components of buildings interact over time and building up a personal health record for each structure, allowing for a far better understanding of how we use our spaces and how best to adapt them.

In the fight to make the building industry more sustainable, should we not be exploring how buildings themselves might define the best course of action to make them more circular and efficient?
