Course summary

Overview

Research into health and wellbeing in the built environment addresses the positive and negative effects from people-environment interactions. Understanding the role of the environment, particularly the built environment, and its effect on human health and wellbeing, can help to improve people’s quality of life and provide a sustainable approach to the design and management of our environments. This type of research requires an interdisciplinary approach and the research team includes staff with backgrounds in environmental psychology, epidemiology, town planning, architecture, and community psychology. The group work with engineers, designers, and managers to explore the implications of designed and engineered environments on people’s experiences and subsequent health and wellbeing. There are six main themes to our research: Ageing-in-place and home; Environmental health effects; Healthcare environments; Restorative environments; Sensorial experiences; Urban nature.
