Designing for wellness requires careful material choice and ongoing measurement of indoor air quality. Come hear from Raefer Wallis, an architect and the founder of GIGA, the independent organization working to increase accessibility to healthy buildings globally. GIGA’s key programs include RESET and ORIGIN. RESET is the world’s first building standard to assess and benchmark the health performance of buildings in real-time. ORIGIN is the world’s largest hub of data on building materials and a proud supporter of the Mindful Materials initiative. Raefer will share his architectural perspective and personal journey from practicing architect to authoring building standards and building these GIGA programs.

Speaker:
Raefer Wallis, Founder and CEO, GIGA
