Good design supports health and well-being for all people, considering physical, mental, and emotional effects on building occupants and the surrounding community.” – AIA Framework for Design Excellence

These goals are especially relevant in 2020, as California responds to a pandemic, social justice issues, and devastating fires brought on by climate change. 

Join us to discuss the various components of healthy buildings. We will cover the following key topics: natural and artificial lighting; thermal comfort; indoor air quality; bio-philia and connection to nature; food, movement, and exercise; and happiness.

The session will begin with an overview of current conditions, and review of the Framework for Design Excellence, Design for Well-being. Our experts will delve further into key aspects: Seth Strongin will discuss mechanical and architectural approaches to natural lighting, ventilation, and comfort. Jean Hansen will lead us through the factors of designing for movement and healthy food. Simon Turner will wrap up the discussion with a deep dive into the economic impacts of healthy buildings.
