Health + Wellness Protocols 5: Interiors, Components
Examine building components that shape our interior environments.
Access to good air, light and water is essential to human health. So is access to a supportive built environment. Components make up a building’s envelope and interior elements, vital parts of a building’s major systems, and the technologies that “connect” us and assist occupants in operating the space in an efficient, healthy manner.
In this final Health + Wellness Protocols module, we will examine building components that shape our interior environments and how designers can select components to improve the air we breathe, the water we drink and our access to sunlight and views, which are the hallmarks of the general health and safety of interior spaces.
