This  paper  describes  the  "Self-aware  Buildings" (SAB) project. This is an effort to advance the state of knowledge and technology in the area of environmentally conscious and user-sensitive integrated building control systems. An evolving test bed (SAB cell), its systems, and its information infrastructure are described. Spicifically, simulation- based approaches toward the integrated control of complex building and indoor environmental systems are explored.
