Towards a Healthy City: #2 The Building Scale – This second part in a series of interdisciplinary lab talks will look into concepts of health and wellbeing at the building scale. Since we are spending 80% of our time indoors, our health is at stake in the built environment. Designers, technical experts, public policymakers and employers need to ask themselves how their proposals and organisations can incentivise healthier lifestyles, which may have different meanings for different people – contributing to the physical, mental and social wellbeing of building occupants.
During this lab talk, you will discuss how environments can be shaped, while also taking into account the needs of minorities, the ‚unhealthy‘ and disadvantaged. How can architecture prevent discomfort, disease and accidents, as well as stress, loneliness and generally poor mental health? How should we interpret user-data for reliable and useful insights into sustainable building operations, economical maintenance and healthy indoor climate, in a responsible manner? This discussion will include a look at all building types, with a particular focus on learning- and workspaces and new ‚campus‘ models.
The event will be in English. Admission is free. Please register at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Berlin Chamber of Architects officially acknowledges this event as a professional training that provides 2 credit points.
