Daniels Talks l The Great Indoors: Environmental Quality, Health and Wellbeing in a Quarantining Society

6:30pm to 8:00pm



We spend more time indoors due to COVID-19—limiting social contact to reduce disease transmission. Even before this era of quarantine, 80% or more of our time as a society was spent indoors. This has significant impacts on health and wellbeing. Now more than ever, attention to indoor environmental quality and how it effects people is critical to architectural design and building operation. This event brings together five experts on the indoors, from research scientists to building engineers to architects, examining how buildings should be designed to encourage health and wellbeing in this difficult time.
