Join us for a screening of "Light and Human Health."

The classic understanding of light and architecture revolves around the visual system and the psychological responses it provokes: our perception of space, and aesthetics. However, advances in neuroscience have uncovered a new pathway, independent of the visual system, whereby light and darkness regulate physiology and behavior including sleep, alertness, mood, immune function, and health.

This has broad implications for architecture since we must now begin to include biology in our design considerations.
