Every time you walk into a building, think about this: it’s alive and kicking and wants to be fed. It’s not just some static structure standing there.
As Dave Bartlett, vice president of smarter buildings at IBM, sees it, a building is remarkably analogous to a living organism.
And, just like in the human body, all these systems are interconnected and affect one another.
Bartlett developed his “physiology of buildings” concept to help illustrate how buildings work and how they should be managed to optimize operations and maximize energy efficiency.
In other words, how to make them healthy and how to contribute to a smarter planet.
