Report On The State of Health + Urbanism

The CAU is a collaborator with the AIA in responding to The Decade of Design, a 10-year Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment to Action that focuses on health and urbanism. With MIT’s reputation as a center of cutting-edge research and innovation, and the MIT School of Architecture and Planning’s pursuit of knowledge through research, we are working together to challenge long-held assumptions about the urban environment and search for evidence-based actions that will create healthier environments through the power of design. This student report is the first step on that journey, summarizing the work of a 3-month workshop with graduate students from SA+P.

Abstract

The CAU is a collaborator with the AIA in responding to The Decade of Design, a 10-year Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment to Action that focuses on health and urbanism. With MIT’s reputation as a center of cutting-edge research and innovation, and the MIT School of Architecture and Planning’s pursuit of knowledge through research, we are working together to challenge long-held assumptions about the urban environment and search for evidence-based actions that will create healthier environments through the power of design. This student report is the first step on that journey, summarizing the work of a 3-month workshop with graduate students from SA+P.
