I'm trying to come up with a word for the science and study of buildings and of their inhabitants. This would include, but not be restricted to, the study of building physics, energy, indoor environmental quality, ergonomics, etc. The goal is to come up with a two-word phrase for the use of computers in that field, i.e. Computational XXXology or something similar.
We already have Building Science or Building Physics but I find that Computational Building Science becomes clumsy.
I've been looking up different synonyms for buildings and their greek translation:
- building: ktirio
- house: spiti
- residence: katokoia
- construction: oikodomue
And I suppose this would yield ktiriology, spitiology, katokoiology, or oikodumology. None of which makes for a particularly memorable word.
