This paper overviews state of the art, the development activities, and futuristic vision on 'smart' and 'intelligent' buildings' construction in context of measures which improve their energy efficiency. The technologies for programming, regulation and automation of energy consumption in buildings, which characterize the current form of 'smart' buildings together with the implementation of 'intelligent' facades, are already pointing to some significant results which may be accomplished in relation to energy efficiency optimization of buildings without compromising their greater flexibility and comfort in use. One of the major preconditions for further development of these systems is the integration of design processes which refer to the core of a building and to its installation utilities.
