Check out Erik Olsen's essay 'What is Indoors' published today on >
Erik was inspired by the thought that a lot of people are aware of the need to address climate change and of the 'green building’ movement, but they don't seem to think about their own direct relationship with the space they inhabit. Erik has written these essays with the overall goal to encourage readers to reexamine their relationship with the indoor environment, its relationship to outdoors, and how it impacts both their lives and the environment, generally focusing on commercial buildings and the urban environment.
