Coupled indoor-outdoor environments for better indoor air quality

Coupled indoor-outdoor environments for better indoor air quality

We are excited to announce we will be holding an in-person and online event at Imperial College London City and Guilds Building on 5th July 2024 from 10am to 2:30pm.

The air we breathe is critical to our health and well-being, yet an estimated 91% of people in urban areas world-wide breathe polluted air. Indeed, long-term exposure to a range of air pollutants, both from indoor sources and outdoor sources, in urban and rural areas, is associated with acute and chronic health effects. Indoor and outdoor environments are inextricably linked. Therefore, to provide acceptable indoor air quality, indoor and outdoor environments must be considered together in terms of design, assessment, and operation.

This workshop presents ideas from a soon-to-be-published paper which acknowledges that the coupling, or air exchange capacity, between indoor and outdoor environments is key to providing acceptable indoor air quality and presents a roadmap for adopting a coupled indoor-outdoor design and modelling approach to delivering healthier indoor environments. The workshop will offer ample time for discussion.
