Designing with nature in mind for buildings where people thrive

Hiroshi Sambuichi (Japan), Nicolas Michelin (France), Rasmus Astrup (Denmark) and Vincent Le Garrec (France) will be on stage as keynote speakers at the VELUX Group’s Daylight Symposium x Healthy Buildings Day, the only forum in the world dedicated to build the bridge from knowledge to practice and explore the role of daylight in building design along with the interlink between light and health. Aiming at bringing science, architecture practice and the building industry closer together, two knowledge-sharing and best-practice platforms will for the first time be held back to back.

Your home equals your health. It's that simple

”Your home equals your health. It’s that simple” – Professor Joseph Allen to speak at the VELUX Healthy Buildings Day

Dr. Joseph Allen wants you to consider the fact that we spend 65% of our lives inside your home. Most of that time is spent inside one room in particular – the bedroom. He wants you to think about the impact this can have on your health. Professor Joseph Allen from Harvard University will be joining the lineup at the Healthy Buildings Day to share his work explaining precisely why your home is so important to our health.
