Building Design for Good Indoor Air Quality

The basic function of a building is to shelter occupants from outdoor elements and provide a healthy, comfortable environment for productive activity.  This statement is deceptive in its simplicity, because the definition of a "healthy, comfortable environment" evolves over time. For example, features such as artificial lighting and indoor plumbing were once considered luxuries. Accepted building design practices change in response to emerging expectations.
