Health and Well-being within the Built Environment

This research area primarily focuses on the study of health-based metrics and design criteria conducive to indoor and outdoor environmental quality towards physical, physiological, and psychological well-being in domestic urban environments.

Among activities, a number of events have been organised to facilitate exchanges between researchers and academics from several Universities and professional institutions in the UK. 

These interlinked activities have aimed to stimulate a multi-faceted discussion on health and quality of life in residential environments, offering different perspectives on the factors influencing urban living.
