So interesting, this sort of information should be made more widely available. The impact on our mental health worldwide is attributed to spending too much time away from nature. Wow! Access to natural daylight and views is so important during the working day, in our own time, it is up to us as individuals where we choose to be, but an employer should have a responsibility to ensure they look after their employees wellbeing. I suspect that this is not done as a matter of course and a profit is the number one priority.

I would like to...

Description

In Part II, we explore the hidden impact of enclosed interiors. Citing published studies, we explore the limited success building standards like BREEAM, WELL, and LEED have encountered when dealing with isolated interiors. Viable solutions to mitigate the deleterious impact of isolated interiors require a new cognitive architecture: one based on our hardwired habits of perception.

Part II delves into environmental design and the mechanics of perception. We analyze the internal algorithms that make up spatial cognition, including the relevance of environmental context in modulating visual signal intensity. We also discuss the roles played by focused and peripheral vision, including the latter’s key function in setting a subconscious emotional tone or sense of place that we intuit upon entering interiors.

Objectives

The Impact of Deep Plan Buildings
Learn about the decades-long lifecycle of deep plan buildings and how retrofitting the existing floorstock with virtual portals to a perceived exterior allows designers to mitigate the deleterious impact of enclosed interiors in metropolitan areas.
The Limits of Building Standards
Review the limitations faced by leading building standards in addressing isolated interiors or spaces devoid of views to nature and how cognitive architecture provides a new stratagem.
Environmental Context & Visual Stimuli
Analyze the dynamic neural nature of sensory stimuli processing and how environmental context plays a key role in modulating how we process visual input, revealing techniques that can alter occupants’ experience of enclosed interiors.
The Value of Biophilic Engagement
Discuss the importance of neurologically complex environments (those that provide access to panoramic views to nature), which facilitate cognitive restoration through biophilic engagement.

David Navarrete MS, MBA manages Sky Factory's research partnerships with healthcare organizations interested in cognitive biophilia studies. He has contributed research articles to Human Spaces, a global forum on biophilic design, and Conscious Cities Journal, a new field of research/practice focused on the neurobiology of design. He is the co-author of Sky Factory’s new RIBA / BIID / USGBC CPD course, The Restorative Impact of Perceived Open Space. The abstract based on these findings will be presented at the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture (ANFA), at the Salk Institute, in September, 2018.
