For an article featured in the spring issue of its member magazine, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently interviewed ZGF partner Kathy Berg about how design can inspire greater physical activity in the workplace.
ZGF project architect and daylighting specialist Marty Brennan also described how the use of circadian lighting indoors can complement natural daylight, improving occupant wellness. At a ZGF-designed behavioral-health facility in Seattle, circadian lighting helps synchronize patients’ natural sleep-wake rhythms, marking the passage of time and providing a sense of calm as the day winds down.
Berg was also featured on a recent episode of USGBC’s “Built for Health” podcast series, where she discussed the impact of design on how people move within the built environment. The full issue can be read here.
