Well Living Lab Featured in Architect Magazine


Adding to the growing media coverage on the Well Living Lab is a recent article in Architect Magazine titled, “The Well Living Lab Attempts to Connect Human Health With Buildings”.

Author Blaine Brownell, AIA, is the Director of graduate studies in the school of architecture at the University of Minnesota, an architect and materials researcher and author of the three Transmaterial books (2006, 2008, 2010). Following his recent visit to the lab, Brownell recognized the Lab’s purpose in closing the gap between human health and the design of buildings built for people.

“Although architects implicitly appreciate the benefits of buildings that offer plenty of natural ventilation, daylight, nontoxic materials, and acoustic controls, the so-called intangible benefits have been difficult to quantify. Designed to tackle this challenge, the Well Living Lab.”

No other lab is positioned so well to quantify and address indoor health.
