HISTORY OF BUILDING BIOLOGY
Building Biology studies the effects of the built environment on human health and planetary ecology. The field of Building Biology came about in Germany after World War II, when researchers and scientists began to notice that people living in postwar mass-produced housing communities were developing widespread chronic illnesses. Because of this correlation, Building Biologists came to the conclusion that the purity of the housing environment is crucial to long-term health.
Building Biology in America has been around since the mid 1980's, when a visionary named Helmut Ziehe decided to bring this interdisciplinary study to the United States. Because it is multi-faceted and holistic in nature, Building Biology incorporates research and scientific methodology from a variety of disciplines. We at Ecodynamic Living Solutions are most concerned with how your house affects your health and the health of your family.
