Book Talk: The Great Indoors

Monday, October 26, 2020
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The Great Indoors by Emily AnthesLearn how our built world, and the buildings in which we spend 90% of our time, affects our mental and physical well-being, our productivity, and our behavior. In her new book, The Great Indoors: The Surprising Science of How Buildings Shape Our Behavior, Health, and Happiness (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2020), science journalist Emily Anthes explores the pain-killing power of a well-placed window, how room temperature regulates our cognitive performance, and whether a well-designed prison can help support inmates’ psychological needs.
