How does Wellness & Health impact our working & living lives? With many new buildings under construction, how many of these can be described or certified healthy? Do we know how healthy buildings can lead to positive impacts on both immediate environments both internal and external? If so what are the implications? We need to understand how working spaces will be used and how connected they are to the natural & built environments. Can biophilic design achieve wellness and positive built environment outcomes? Can we achieve a sweet spot of living and working with increased health and wellness? How does timber and the use of timber in built environments achieve these positive outcomes? Are there existing examples of these to educate current design intents? How does the modern and post-COVID design paradigms allow us to eliminate a dichotomy of health & wellness with built environments?
