Using evidence-based design, living laboratories and virtual simulations, the design community is gaining insider knowledge into how the brain reacts to simulated and real environments. For too long, research and design worlds have been isolated entities; now the communities must be integrated to better understand how the built environment affects cognitive function and enrich lives. Join HMC’s Eera Babtiwale at the U.S Green Building Council Los Angeles Chapter (USGBC-LA) Municipal Green Building Conference and Expo (MGBCE) to learn about the enriching science behind healthy indoor air quality and how design and rating systems can dramatically impact cognitive performance.
