Multi-Criteria Approach for the Evaluation of Intelligent Buildings - Case of the Cyber PARC of Algiers
The introduction of new architectural technologies has led to a profound change and a radical transformation in the
design and production process giving rise to new architectural expressions. The use and practice of space have been affected
by digital systems of control and management of space and the interaction of the user within the built environment. The
concept of intelligent building continues to this day, its evolution in all countries of the world. In Algeria, to speed up the
transition of the country towards an economy of knowledge and technology, new cities for innovation and propulsion of digital
technology have been planned. The study allows identifying and analyzing the key parameters of a smart architecture and
putting at the disposal of designers a multi criteria approach for the assessment of the building degree of intelligence. An
analysis of a representative sample of buildings of the technological environment of the cyber parc of Algiers was carried out
to identify all the elements linked to the context of technology integration, behavior and adaptation of the users to the new
space and functional aspects of buildings and architectural quality. Finally, a Multi criteria approach for the assessment of the
degree of intelligence of buildings is established. The results of the research show that intelligent solutions are not only
limited to the integration of technological systems, but the concerns of sustainability and of usability are also taken into
account in a totally approach of assessment for intelligent building. In conclusion, the Multi criteria approach developed can
serve as a guide for the design of intelligent buildings taking into account recommendations for its application.
