Researchers studying the microbiology of the built environment have discovered linkages between architectural/urban design and microbial communities. Gwynne will introduce design students (architecture, landscape architecture, planning, etc.) to this field of research and elicit their responses regarding application of the scientific findings to design practice. Students will be asked to post questions to microBEnet later in the term – stay tuned!
