UNStudio and ANCB host second Healthy Cities event in Berlin

Towards a Healthy City: The Building Scale

How can architecture prevent discomfort, disease and accidents, as well as reduce stress, loneliness and poor mental health? How should we interpret user-data for reliable and useful insights into sustainable building operations, economical maintenance and healthy indoor climates? This second part in a series of interdisciplinary lab talks will look into concepts of health and wellbeing at the building scale.

Humans spend about 80% of our time indoors. As such, our health is seriously effected by the built environments we occupy. Designers, technical experts, public policymakers and employers need to ask themselves how proposals and designs incentivise healthier lifestyles, contributing to the physical, mental and social wellbeing of building occupants.

During this second lab talk, panelists, peers and lecturers will discuss how environments can be shaped to increase our health, while also taking into account the needs of minorities, the 'unhealthy' and disadvantaged. This discussion will include a look at all building typologies, with a particular focus on places of learning, workspaces and new 'campus' models.
