Buildings and Health for Harvard Magazine

A spot illustration I did for the May-June 2017 issue of Harvard Magazine. The article is titled " Cognitive Benefits of Healthy Buildings" by Oset Babur. 

"IMAGINE A BUSINESS that creates a perfectly energy-efficient environment by adjusting ventilation rates in its workplace. On paper, the outcome would seem overwhelmingly positive: fewer greenhouse-gas emissions to the environment and lowered costs to the business. It’s an idyllic scenario, except for what Joseph Allen and his team at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH) describe as the potentially serious human cost: workers with chronic migraines, nausea, fatigue, and difficulty focusing. Fortunately, these side effects are avoidable."
