Building Biology & Sustainability

Episode Summary

This is my conversation with Johannes Schmidt of the Institute of Building Biology & Sustainability in Germany. Johannes manages the Building Biology course offered by the institute in English online so he is a real expert in his subject.  We discuss how building biology in Germany effectively pre-dates the healthy building movement in the US, the concept of human-centric design in buildings, how Building Biology was one step ahead of post-Covid ventilation strategies, as well as the importance of a bedroom free from Electro Magnetic Radiation and how thinking of our bodies as a tool to be used in nature every day is at the root of the entire Building Biology value system.
