The built environment impacts health at every scale that we design and build in. This understanding has magnified in recent years with a particular focus on interior design, material health and the transparency of products we specify. This lecture, panel discussion and Q & A will highlight the opportunities for designers, owners and product manufacturers to join the transparency movement today and begin making a positive difference tomorrow.
Breeze Glazer, Principal at LEAP/STEP and Irena Skoda, Architect will start the evening with a brief lecture on healthy materials, the transparency movement and the Precautionary List.
Bill Walsh, Founder & President of the Board, Healthy Building Network, will provide information on health hazards related to some of the chemicals used in our building materials, success stories on making our materials healthier, and identify some next steps for making our building materials healthier for all.
