From personal health and well-being to widespread global concerns, such as the pandemic, climate change, and the recent uptick in natural disasters, indoor environmental quality is more important than ever. Architects and designers have a unique opportunity and obligation to be good stewards when it comes to smart strategies that address these issues. This academy provides a deep dive into protecting people, property, and community by designing buildings that enhance occupant comfort and health, as well as resilience and the health of our planet. Topics will include attention to acoustics, ventilation, natural air, natural light, views, and, of course, specifying clean, sustainable materials.
