Can good design truly make us happy? We spend the majority of our time in buildings, so shouldn’t we have a better understanding of how they make us feel? This podcast addresses how bad design affects our physical and mental health, and what we can do to make happiness a priority in all of our buildings. There is also the question of designing buildings for those with additional needs – how do we put choice and control at the heart of our designs?
Ben Channon, Architect at Assael Architecture and Author of Happy By Design, is joined by Buro Happold's Mike Entwistle, Adam Poole and Jean Hewitt in this far-reaching discussion.
