Health and Active Design through Green Building
In the 19th and early 20th centuries, architects and urban reformers improved buildings, streets, neighborhoods, clean water systems, and parks, in order to combat the spread of infectious disease and improve public health. Today, designers can still play a crucial role in combating some of teh most rapidly growing public health epidemics of our time, including obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. A growing body of research suggests that evidence-based architectural and urban design strategies can positively impact public health by promoting regular physical activity and healthy eating.
