Description

Urban Design: Health and the Therapeutic Environment shows how the theory and practice of urban design and planning impact on public health issues and sustainable development. With cities increasingly crowded and the need for new homes paramount, Moughtin explores the concept of what makes a physically and psychologically 'healthy' environment. The book sets out the history and development of the healthy city, from the English spa town to standards of health care in Cuba. Health and the Therapeutic Environment outlines best practice for healthy and sustainable urban design and provides a reference tool for architects, urban designers and planners.
