Event Details

Current construction practices lead to buildings with short lifespans made from products that contain a range of toxic chemicals, whose toxic afterlives can span millennia, that pollute our homes and create a host of health conditions. All people are at risk of unwanted exposures in daily habitats, but those most vulnerable are the young and the poor—traditionally and continuously marginalized.

Healthy Materials Lab at the Parsons School of Design is dedicated to the creation of better buildings for all. In this presentation, Healthy Materials Lab co-founders Alison Mears and Jonsara Ruth will join a  conversation with David J. Lewis about LTL Architects’ recent project that establishes new paradigms for better, healthier building practices.
