Editorial Reviews


A true interdisciplinary guide, adding a new dimension to management of the indoor environment. This unique work is a must-have for any professional involved in indoor environmental issues. Prof. Dr. O.C.G. Adan, Faculty of Applied Physics, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands

The book is a nouvelle interpretation of the consolidated knowledge and best practices. It captures the essence of the challenge faced in managing buildings: understanding the ways people perceive and react to the space they live and work in. Nadia Boschi, Ph.D. Architect, Sustainability Manager CEMEA & LAC, Bovis Lend Lease CEMEA & LAC

Professionals who are working to make buildings healthy and comfortable will want to read this book and use it in their work..Highly recommended. CHOICE Magazine

It is a must-have for any professional involved in indoor environmental issues and will help make the Design/Management process more efficient and effective. Building Engineer Magazine

Its insights into how humans react normally (and abnormally) to indoor environments are excellent. Eagle Bulletin: An environmental & sustainability newsletter for the professions

The book goes far beyond an examination of thermal comfort, air quality, lighting and noise:it illustrates the way the various factors interact with each other and how they affect the human body, while pointing out way in which the quality of the indoor environment can be anchored as a goal in planning processes. Daylight and Architecture
