How to design fitter cities? City Health Check – a Report by RIBA

Sustainable Building Design

This report was released by RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects)

‘Our analysis finds a clear correlation between the least healthy local authority areas in cities, and the amount of housing and green space in those areas.’

The design and space planning of cities can and does have a huge impact of the health and well-being of those who occupy these spaces. The contents of the report include case studies and design analysis that is most useful for planning.

Two clear conclusions are formulated:

1. There is a clear link between land use and public health in cities

2.  People say it is the QUALITY not quantity of streets and parks that will encourage them to walk more.
