FOCUSING LIGHT on Epigenetic Design
Understanding how our body, brain and emotions
What is EPIGENETIC DESIGN....and why is the relationship between genetics and the built environment so important?
When it comes to human health, job performance, workplace productivity, sleep, cognition, and even how fast we heal, the answer is a shining bright light at the end of a long, dark, tunnel of windowless environments, overly bright nights, acoustically noisy and overly-chilled spaces, inadequate lighting, and design for the sake of aesthetics alone.
An emerging practice of intent-driven, evidence-based architectural and interior design devoted to a working knowledge of how the body and brain are directly affected by design related environmental cues, the case for universal understanding of EPIGENETIC DESIGN is becoming increasingly clear in light of recent scientific and medical research from world class universities and research labs around the world. And in order to provide a layman's clearinghouse for the most relevant information pertaining to the link between our human functioning and everyday design, this web site is dedicated to providing the starting point with which the A&D professional, building occupant, healthcare provider or average 'guy on the street' can learn more about how the places in which they spend their days and go home to each night is affecting their lives, health and overall wellbeing.
