Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
If we want to reliably enhance well-being, building design needs to move beyond optimising single parameters such as temperature and humidity, to include more holistic approaches that take their cues in supporting healthy behaviours for its occupants.
Planners, architects and engineers play a critical role in shaping the qualities of our environment; they work in collaboration with end users and meeting their needs and ambitions, and they have the power to restore and promote cohesion, mental and physical health.
Join the City Architecture Forum and Arup knowledge café for an evening filled with interactive and engaging discussion on the best practices, innovation and challenges in shaping better buildings and communities. We'll explore the value of health and wellbeing measures in builing design and city planning, diving into a range of topics such as air quality, healthy building design, active transportation and more.
Welcome and introduction by Katie Wood and Michael Beaven, Arup Health and Wellbeing Strategy leaders.
Our facilitators for the evening will be; Walking world - Ikumi Nakashi, People and wellbeing - Rebecca Goldberg and Emely Broeker, Urban childhoods - Sam Williams, Urban design and planning - Eike Sindlinger, Air quality inside and out - Michael Beaven, and Healthy buildings - Elisa Bruno
