Hastings+Chivetta Project Architects, Dan Sullivan and Preston Scott, have been invited to speak at the National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) Recreational Facilities Institute conference, December 5-7 in Miami. The conference provides in-depth information for recreational professionals on planning, constructing, renovating and operating recreation sports facilities.
Dan and Preston’s presentation, “Body, Mind, Spirit and Facility: Connecting Active Design and Personal Wellbeing” will focus on connecting the Seven Dimensions of Wellness (Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual, Social, Environmental and Occupational) between individuals and a physical building, whether that be an existing facility needing updates or a brand-new building. Dan and Preston will discuss how a recreation facility can encourage students, faculty and staff to work out in the gym, gather with friends to study and foster a healthy spirit while experiencing a building that challenges the definition of a “healthy building.”
In this session, attendees will:
- Analyze how the Seven Dimensions of Wellness can impact a physical building.
- Understand how current architectural buzz words like “Active Design,” “Living Building” and LEED and WELL rating systems can challenge patrons to renewed health and wellbeing.
