The amount of media facades that are deployed in urban landscapes steadily increases. Although they offer great potential for interaction, there is a lack of interaction and design concepts to exploit their full potential. Due to the individuality of media facades and their highly dynamic deployment context, interaction concepts are barely transferable. This research aims at providing a taxonomy of interaction techniques for media facades applications that considers the deployment context of the facade. Furthermore, my work aims at providing a classification that will help to identify corellations between interfaces, interactions and emotional qualities when interacting with media facades.
