EVOLV: Establishing the value of lights and view

The EVOLV study, conducted by the University of Illinois UrbanaChampaign and SUNY Upstate Medical University, sought to establish the value of daylight and views on people's health and productivity.

The office with optimized daylight and views produced better visual comfort, resulting in a 48% reduction in reported eyestrain. Participants were also 77% less likely to report feeling depressed because of the brighter light conditions and improved views in the office with optimized daylight and views.
