The book provides new perspectives from leading researchers accentuating and examining the central role of the built environment in conceiving and implementing multifaceted solutions to the complex challenges of physical and mental health, revealing critical potentials for architecture and design to contribute in more informed and long-term ways to the urgent transition of our society.
