“Breathable Buildings: A Contemporary Examination of Natural Ventilation and its Role in the Future of Building Design” study is the result of a collaboration between Introba and Eckersley O’Callaghan Engineers, driven by a shared commitment to advancing sustainable, resilient, and healthy building design. It intends to spark meaningful discussions and inspire new approaches to building design that prioritize occupant health and well-being.
The first section of the report focuses on the current drivers for natural ventilation in building design: the modern workplace, industry advocacy, occupant health and well-being, and the climate emergency. The second section of the report focuses on key challenges and strategies. The Moriyama Teshima Architects’ designed University of Waterloo Mathematics Building is used as a case study.
