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

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

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 affects 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.

  • Kellie Chin (Workshop Architecture)
  • Simon Coulombe (Wilfrid Laurier University)
  • Steven Lockley (Brigham and Women’s Hospital & Harvard Medical School)
  • Alejandra Menchaca (Thornton Tomasetti)
  • Lidia Morawska (Queensland University of Technology)
  • Manuel Riemer (Wilfrid Laurier University)

Moderated by Bomani Khemet (Daniels Faculty) and Alstan Jakubiec (Daniels Faculty)
