Report submitted by Amy Brander, recipient of the Pai Lin Li Travel Award Grant in 2018.

Amy's report seeks to identify the importance of people’s health and well-being as being at the forefront of any building’s design. It summarises both the pros and cons of designing to WELL standardisation, and the use of biophilic design within the built environment. It focusses on projects in both Sweden and Canada, two countries that have built several successful buildings to WELL standards.
