Healthy Buildings

Attended an interesting lecture today about HEALTHY buildings. Been to lots of talks about green buildings, energy saving etc. etc. but this was about buildings in which occupants thrive. As with schools there was a lot about better performance with natural lighting, clean HVAC and no toxic materials. Combine this with grand (or fun) staircases and the elevators hidden out of site (the opposite prevails generally) and one starts to have a healthy building.
