"Materials Air Architecture Wellness Health."   An overview of 18 years of practice in Shanghai pursuing the design of buildings that support and regenerate our health, from award-winning architecture to the creation of ORIGIN, the world’s largest public resource of data on building materials, and RESET, the world’s first building standard for the measurement of the health performance of buildings in real-time.  “Architects have mastered the art of using materials to build shelter and to inspire, but the materials in use today often do more harm than good, undermining the health of the people we aim to shelter and protect. The harm is often either remote or hyper-local but invisible and silent, especially when it comes to indoor air quality. As a result, architects are now required to master materials in ways they never have before.”
