MAKERS OF SUSTAINABLE SPACES LAB

 

Plants offer a host of benefits indoors, including pollutant removal and reductions in building energy consumption. Significant research is published on the ability of plants to ameliorate acoustics, relative humidity, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, VOCs, and occupant wellbeing.

 

Limited studies, however, examine the multifaceted effects of large scale green interventions on building occupants in combination with optimizations of the physical environment. We aim to bridge a research gap between the realistic benefits of large scale indoor green and the public, and to do so we aim to run an experiment undertaking trials using live plants. 

90% of our time is spent indoors. By the time most of us hit 40, we’ve spent 36 years indoors. The spaces we inhabit effect:

 

  • The worker’s:
    • Productivity
    • Blood pressure
    • Heart rate
    • Cortisol levels
    • Absenteeism
  • A room’s:
    • Air quality
    • CO2 level
    • Humidity / temperature
    • Energy needs
    • Acoustics
