Photovoice Project: Investigating human factors in green office buildings

This project explored the experiences of people who work in evolv1: a new zero carbon, net positive energy green office building in Waterloo, Ontario that prioritizes sustainability and clean energy production in its building design and operation. Through applying an innovative photo- and discussion-based research method called Photovoice, participants captured and explored their own perspectives on working in this unique building, specifically as it pertains to shaping their own behaviour and views on sustainability and how the building impacts their personal well-being. The resulting themes from this research, conducted largely prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, represent some of the experiences of individual occupants at evolv1 and their suggestions for the future for this, and similar buildings and workplaces, that strive to centre both well-being and sustainability.

The works were displayed inside THEMUSEUM’s Atrium Gallery Space.
