Architects, interior designers and others in the AEC Industry are encouraged to attend an event focused on wellness architecture, DESIGNWELL, taking place Jan. 22-23, 2019, in San Diego, Calif.
The program will be focused on how nature, materials, and design come together to benefit human health and performance within the built environment. The challenges of improving design for better human health and performance have created new business opportunities for architects, interior designers and other AEC professionals. Pre-registration will be required for the event and both AIA learning units and CEU’s from various industry associations will be available.
Bill Doherty, ICDevents president, notes, “Design in the AEC community is set to focus on how human health and performance can be improved in the built environment over the next decade. We put together this conference to highlight these practices and help the next generation improve design and ultimately improve health.”
Eric Corey Freed, architect and author, and part of the speaker lineup states, “Innovation and progress comes from getting the right people in the room and sharing our stories. I’m excited to be part of this group working on constructing healthy, vibrant buildings for everyone. I can’t wait to see the ideas that come from this conference.”
Also joining the speaker lineup is Blake Jackson, sustainability design leader & associate at Stantec Architecture. Jackson, a WELL faculty and Fitwel ambassador, will be presenting a discussion on both the WELL and Fitwel rating systems within the built environment.
“Having an event that deals with how the design, construction, and operations of the built environment impacts health and wellness is a turning point for bringing this issue to the forefront of our industry and to the public which it serves. This event highlights the importance of intentional design, construction, and operations of our built environment, as it impacts the health and well-being of all, by bringing together top talent from across the industry to share, educate, and inspire one another towards better health-focused outcomes, says Jackson.
Design in the AEC community is set to change and focus on how we can improve human health and performance in the built environment over the next decade. These new practices will help the next generation improve design and will ultimately improve health.
