This paper discusses the emergence and need of principles and guidelines for the design of interaction spaces based on media façades, as large public interactive spaces. Media façades, as new architectural creations, are being designed and built all over the world, and possibilities for interaction with individuals and groups of users are being discovered in multiple dimensions. This paper consolidates a number of empirically observed features of current projects and maps these onto a systematic framework of feature domains. We expect the framework to help in conceptualization, analysis and evaluation of current and future designs and to guide the design of the active and interactive solutions
