Abstract: Recent progress made in the area of sensors and actuators has led to the rapid adoption of these devices. At present, they are most commonly employed in the field of building automation (i.e.: mechanical systems). With apt and proper implementation, these devices can further augment a space with the ability to sense and respond to its users and environment. The impetus from increasing motivations in Interactive Transformative Architecture (ITA) has made comprehension of how these devices work in the larger context of a space and the systems that enable them, an essential theory. While there are existing frameworks that guide one on establishing ITA projects, they mainly view the applications of these devices as a separate design entity from existing architectural values. Nevertheless, by combining rigorous assessments and evaluations from interactive or/and transformative architectural projects, an extended framework can be projected. With further integration of broader issues (i.e.: typology and context) and technical concepts (i.e.: sensors, actuators and their enabling systems), the newly proposed framework aims to steer a designer in the art of executing meaningful ITA projects competently.
