Indoor Air Quality Focus: Air is vital for human life: we can live 30 days without eating, three days without drinking – but only three minutes without breathing. The fresher the air we breathe, the healthier we feel in the buildings we live, work and play in. Yet we don’t often think about air quality as a factor in building design
