AIA CEO Robert Ivy explains why to Fast Company:
Like a light bulb, this graphic can illuminate an “aha” moment, leading to greater awareness of the direct link between design and public health issues. Though often overlooked, carefully considered design decisions and building materials selections can have profound impacts on health and well-being.
