The buildings’ indoor condition called “indoor environmental quality (IEQ)” has become a major goal, all IEQ elements must be maintained within a certain range for the comfort and health of the occupants. To achieve this goal, the previous studies focused on building occupants’ responses based on their activities and the changes in IEQ. Few studies, however, have comprehensively analyzed the above and reflected it in building design and operation. The study of this concept can be expressed as “human-building interaction management.” This approach is a paradigm for the healthy, sustainable, and simultaneous management of people, IEQ, and buildings. This study conducted an in-depth literature review on the above-mentioned studies. In addition, it ultimately proposed an intelligent planning unit (IPU), a new approach that can be used as a tool to apply the above human-building interaction concept to the practical design concept focusing on the planning phase. The IPU theory is designed to meet the customer expectations for the various objectives of a complex built environment. Eventually, it is expected that the proposed IPU concept will promote the spread of good health and environment-friendly buildings.
