AIA CA Climate Action Webinar: Visual Delight in Architecture


12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Event Type

Speaker: Lisa Heschong, FIES | Heschong Mahone Group

Views out of windows have traditionally been considered “nice to have”, but not crucial for human health and well-being. However, evidence is mounting that quality views are essential for not only increased occupant comfort, satisfaction, and productivity, but long-term health.

Some questions this session will address: Are there additional benefits of daylighting and quality views for interior spaces? How important is this exposure, for sleep quality, metabolic health, eye health and development, disorientation, depression, anxiety, and pain management? Where, when, and why does view matter the most? How can universal access to quality views be integrated into codes and policies, urban design, landscape design, architecture, and interior design to elevate quality views as a critical “must have” design outcome for all people?
