The Morbid Health Implications of Living in the Interior Built Environment
MetadataShow full item record
There is an alarming quantity of chemicals being incorporated into common building materials. These materials significantly increase the toxicity of indoor environments, with their toxicity inherent across most stages of the materials life cycle, negatively impacting humans and the broader environment, from production through to construction, occupation, demolition and waste disposal. This research aims to make explicit the prevalence and effect of these toxins, intending to influence a reduction of poor design and construction practices.
