The design of a building, interior, or urban space can have an enormous impact on human health, thoughts, and actions. Every design element—from interaction with natural views, light and sound, the height of work surfaces, the layout of meeting areas, and community connectivity—can affect our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Design teams need to be equipped with the latest and most rigorous research-based data to create positive human experiences.
