There is a direct relationship between health and the quality of the environment built.
When we design buildings and their surroundings, we create space that affects the mental and physical well-being of people. Access to daylight, fresh air and appealing outdoor spaces stimulate health, comfort and well-being. Without buildings, only very few areas of the earth would be suitable for habitation all year round. Buildings protect us against wind and weather and create a healthy indoor climate.
Our surroundings can be designed to make us exercise more or to ensure more light for more people. Architecture with a good indoor climate can contribute to fewer sick days; daylight and green surroundings mean patients can be discharged from hospital sooner; and parks and appealing outdoor spaces affect public health.
