Natural light: food for thought
Not so very long ago, people gave little thought of making natural light a priority in the design concept of homes, apartments, office blocks and community facilities. If you have ever worked in a space with little available natural light and minimal fresh air, you would know all too well how tired and lethargic you could feel at the end of a day's work. How times have changed. We now know how important natural light and fresh air is - to how well we generally feel. Now the focus is on developing sustainable, clean natural energy sources so that our air, earth, river and ocean systems are safe, protected and restored to a pristine condition.
