CEU Description: We spend 90% of our time indoors, so our indoor environment has an outsized impact on our health. And yet, we’re only beginning to investigate those impacts and how to mitigate them. What we’re going to look at today in particular, is the quality of the air in these indoor environments and how that affects us. We’ve tightened up our building envelope, thus decreasing ventilation and trapping pollution. We’re also using products in our interior spaces that emit harmful VOCs. Because of this, we see negative effects on our health and cognitive functioning. How do we measure the cost, and how do we invest in solving this problem? Learn how you can design to support healthy indoor air quality through ventilation and product specification.

(3) Review projects that have incorporated Biophilic Elements and how one might implement Biophilic Design properties into your design.  (4) Discuss the economic, health and well being impacts of Biophilic Design. Summary:  Biophilic Design is “Great design that recognizes and embraces how humans are biological creatures with deeply rooted biological needs.” Our need to maintain a connection to nature – for our physical, physiological and emotional well-being – has been understood by artists, scientists and designers for many years. And most people have known it intuitively ever since the advances of industry began to separate us from natural surroundings. Today, the benefits to our bodies and minds of this contact with nature are being understood in more and more detail. And this increasing awareness has brought biophilia and biophilic design to the forefront of our thinking and behavior.
