How do the spaces where we live, work, and play influence our mood, mind, and overall health and wellbeing? 

The conversation with Kimberly Brown, Co-founder of Strata Architects, and Janna Wandzilak from Delos, the world's first "wellness" real estate firm was really very insightful. The talk did not only cover the importance of materials, air filtration, and light, but also what we as individuals can do to improve our surroundings. We learned among much else, about design decisions that improve our mental health (add organic materials and shapes), and the use of plants for air filtration. It all boils down to doing some research and asking suppliers "what's in your product?"
