21st century housing: healthy buildings, healthy communities (hosted by The Royal Danish Embassy and Design Manchester)

Quality of living is tied closely to one’s health. How to take that into consideration, when new homes are build? Come and join the debate!

More and more people live in cities all over the world. Healthy living in cities is therefore paramount to increase the quality of living for an increasing number of people. It begins with the buildings in which we spent most of our time. How to create healthier buildings, offices, homes? How to improve the quality of housing for both the young and the old? In this seminar, we’ll look at the interface between health, architectural sound buildings and urban planning.

This event is part of the Liveable City conference, which is jointly organised by the Royal Danish Embassy and Design Manchester with the support of Manchester City Council, Manchester Society of Architects, Manchester School of Architecture and the Design Council.
