JLL Real Views: NBBJ Fellow Explores Intersection of Architecture and Neuroscience

In Real Views, the thought leadership platform for global commercial real estate group JLL, NBBJ Fellow Dr. John Medina says understanding how the brain works is important for architects and developers. Dr. Medina argues that while scientists are still learning a lot about the brain, they already know certain environments such as open offices cause stress hormones to increase and therefore should be augmented with a variety of spaces. He also discuses the importance of nature when designing spaces for all sectors of work.
