Optimizing Buildings to Promote Health

Updated: Jun 19

It has recently become even more important that built spaces support the physical and mental health of their inhabitants, through operations and protocols (cleaning, hand washing, short-term interior density management, etc.) and design (ventilation systems, biophilic and active design, etc.). The current health crisis has compounded stress levels for many worldwide, when poor mental health is already the largest contributor to disease globally. Ensuring people feel (and are) safe going back to the workplace, to restaurants and retail places, or communing in public spaces is a responsibility and challenge that must be embraced.

The Center for Active Design shares five ways buildings can be optimized for the prevention of COVID19, and other illnesses.

The Urban Land Institute (ULI) offers a free webinar on optimizing mental health and mitigating the spread of COVID-19 in buildings and communities (a written synopsis can be found here).
