Architecture and Health recognizes the built environment and health as inextricable encouraging a new mindset for the profession. Over forty international award-winning projects are included to explore innovative design principles linked to health outcomes. The book is organized into three interdependent health domains-individual, community, and global-in which each case study proposes context-specific architectural responses. Case studies include children's hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, elderly housing, mental health facilities, cancer-support centers, clinics, healthy communities, healthcare campuses, wellness centers, healing gardens, commercial offices, infrastructure for developing countries, sustainable design, and more. Representing the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Australia, each author brings a new perspective to health and its related architectural response.

This book brings a timely focus to a subject matter commonly constricted by normative building practices and transforms the dialogue into one of creativity and innovation. With over 200 color images, this book is an essential read for architects, designers, and students to explore and analyze designed environments that promote health and well-being.
