Every building impacts its environment. When built and when demolished it will have an impact on the environment. What is that impact? There is a lot to consider in both materials and methods, but also the total embodied energy of gathering and shipping those materials. But even more importantly, consider that the "built-environment" greatly impacts those who use it daily. Businesses, schools, homes, and recreational buildings all have an important influence on the people who use them--whether working, learning, sleeping, or playing. Where we spend most of our time is of great importance. Where we sleep, sit, and stand for long periods on a regular basis has the biggest impact on our health from a standpoint of exposure to our modern environment.
It is the aim of Building Biology to address these issues and create solutions to improve the health of the world. As a result, Building Biology explores building materials from a health standpoint and as they relate to their regional environment (wet, dry, cold, hot, etc). It also considers air and water quality, light and sound aesthetically as it applies to overall health, and the invisible factors that are ubiquitous in our modern society--Electric, Magnetic, and Radio pollution. The current catchphrases for many of these include "EMF's", "dirty electricity" and "5G."
