There has been much research and development into how our built environment impacts health and wellbeing.
We know, anecdotally and through experience, the things that affect us positively are the designs that are sympathetic to nature. Be that including natural light, plants or wildlife, or being more collaborative, having open shared spaces; lending themselves to freedom of movement, airflow and improved communication.
The solutions seem simple, we would rather look at a tree or a co-worker than a wall. There have been numerous studies measuring the benefits of incorporating nature into our daily lives. With increasing populations and more difficulty accessing and protecting our green spaces it is more important than ever we consider incorporating nature into every design.
However, our needs are complex so we will be looking at every level of how we organise our spaces, our streets and our communities.
At this conference we will be discussing ideas, science and current developments, seeing case studies and hearing from the brilliant minds working and researching in these fields today.
We also have a wonderful array of stalls and exhibitors, some of whom are able to offer discounts to event attendees.
Green Architecture Day is a buzzing, vibrant day with plenty of chances to meet interesting people and share ideas and projects.
We hope you can join us on Saturday 30th March 2019 at the Sallis Benney Theatre in Brighton.
