Urban green space design is challenged by limited knowledge of which attributes and spatial configurations are most likely to support mental well-being. This session explains new environmental psychology research that connects specific physical characteristics (best designs) to aspects of wellness. Wellness parks built by TKF Foundation serve as case studies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Appreciate what environmental psychology research brings to the design of urban space for wellbeing.
  • Understand the meaning of evidence-based design and how to employ it for best effect.
  • Discover which physical attributes (content & spatial configuration) of a green space design are preferred.
  • Explore examples of wellness parks built by TKF that exemplify design attributes related to wellbeing.
