April 19 - August 9, 2015
The design of the physical environments in which humans live, work and play greatly impacts health and wellbeing. Too often however, design supports unhealthy rather than healthy habits and practices.
Architects, interior designers and urban planners are responding to this problem with active design, an approach to the development of buildings, streets and neighborhoods that makes daily physical activity and healthy foods more accessible and inviting.
Designing Healthy Communities will explore the specific active design strategies that are used to promote physical activity and healthy living. The exhibition will highlight real-world examples of these strategies in use through case studies, videos, models and interactive activities.
