Designing for Health

Visionary architects, artists, and builders are using cutting-edge design to transform homes, workplaces, schools, neighborhoods, and parks. Recognizing the health-promoting power of good design, their blueprints call for farmers’ markets and recreational fields on hospital grounds; planning processes that revitalize challenged communities by engaging local people as collaborators; and art that reflects and celebrates culture. How do we leverage the power of design to bring people together and foster their well-being?
