Explore the impact of enclosed interiors and deep-plan buildings on human performance, including analysis of the role circadian light and perceived open space play in shaping cognitive function plus our psycho-physiology changes in interior environments.
Presented by Rebecca Clemens of Sky Factory and organized by the AIA Northern Virginia Small Firms Committee.

– Discuss how and why isolating the qualities of light has a profound effect on perception.
– Discuss the role Circadian Photoreceptors play in regulating circadian function and why the environmental context in which our physiology detects circadian light – in open, natural space – may play a role in generating a restorative effect.
– Describe how our sensorimotor system and our memory share the same neural pathways to perceive and map out our environment, making our memory a neural repository of spatial reference frames.
– Summarize the malleable nature of human perception and how multisensory illusions can be designed in architectural settings, transforming how our physiology experiences the built environment.
– Explain the implications of deep plan buildings on human health and productivity and how biophilic design technologies minimize their deleterious impact.
