Light is the major synchronizer of the human circadian system and suppresses melatonin. People spend much of their time in buildings, and the building façade and the lighting within is an important health factor. Join Chad Groshart and Jessica Zofchak at the Boston Society for Architecture on August 3rd for a session on “Light is Essential: Daylight and Electric Light for Health and Wellness.” This session is part of the BSA Summer CE Workshop series, which provides opportunities to earn HSW credits before the state licensing deadline on August 31.
The Well Building Standard has implemented metrics to assess the circadian stimulus provided by both daylight and electric light. The session will discuss the innovative approaches to simulation and interpreting data to assess circadian lighting potential during the design process.
