World Congress on Design + Health

World Congress on Design + Health

Join DIALOG Antonio Gomez-Palacio at the Healthy Cities 2030 Pre-Congress Symposium July 9th, 2014. This is part of the 10th World Congress on Design + Health taking place at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto from July 9–13, 2014.

Antonio will be part of a panel/working session entitled “Healthy Buildings: Improving the Quality of the Work Place”. Here is a brief overview…

“As the impact of the knowledge economy takes effect, an increasing proportion of all jobs are in office buildings. How people get to work (mostly by car, sitting in traffic jams), how we spend our time at work (statistics suggest that the average office worker in the US sits in front of a computer more than six hours a day), and the quality of air we breathe (fluctuations in temperature and airflow directly affect productivity) contribute billions to direct and indirect health costs. Smart employers – often using improvements in energy efficiency as a rationale for investing in better work set ups – are beginning to make in-roads at all scales of the built environment.”
