Daylighting-Bias and Biophilia: Quantifying the Impact of Daylighting on Occupant Health.

This paper reports on a state-of-the-art study quantifying the health and human impacts of daylighting strategies and views quality from windows on employees health in offices. The study attempts to quantify an important yet not scientifically proven assumption concerning the biophilic relationship between views of nature and daylighting in the workplace and their impacts on sick leave of office workers.

The specific hypothesis tested is; that employees with a view of nature will take fewer sick days, have fewer Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) symptoms than those with a view of urban structures, or with no views out at all.
