… the First Annual
Industry Conference on Wellness Occupancy and Design
Architects, interior designers, sustainability professionals and others in the Design Industry are encouraged to attend a focused conference on wellness occupancy and design. Design 4 People will be taking place October 23-24, 2019 in Boston, MA at the Design Center.
The program will focus on how materials, and design come together to improve people’s health within the build environment. Improving design through the use of materials for better health and performance will create new projects for architects, interior designers and other design professionals. Pre-registration will be required for the event with learning units and CEU’s from various industry associations being available.
Meredith Elbaum, Executive Director of USGBC Massachusetts, noted “Design in the community is changing to focus on improving people’s health productivity and wellbeing though improved air quality, material choices and day lighting. We’ve put together this exciting new conference to highlight some new innovative practices that will improve people’s health based on incorporating wellness principles.”
Design 4 People aims to bring innovations and progress into a two day think tank where stories of success will inspire design professionals to adjust how projects are completed. Design 4 People will be an event that directly deals with how the design, construction, and operations of the built environment impacts wellness. This event will highlight the importance of intentional design, construction, and operations of our built environment, as it impacts the health and wellbeing of all people, by bringing together top talent from across the industry to share, educate, and inspire each other towards better health-focused outcomes.
The built environment is changing its focus to designing for people. This new focus will help design professionals, facility managers, building owners, and other professionals improve designing for people.
