Designing happier cities
Monday, October 28, 2019 by Tai Moses
It’s no surprise that the way buildings, neighborhoods and cities are designed has a profound effect on the health and happiness of all those who live in them. In a talk called “Happy Cities: Building Well-Being into Urban Design Policies,” urban planner Tristan Cleveland will discuss “the role of urban design in promoting feelings of safety and economic and social development. Drawing on brain science, psychology, and urban experiments, the speaker will demonstrate how urban planning and design influence how we feel, behave, and treat other people.” This event is part of the Austin Energy Corporate Learning Week PLUS+ and the Imagine Austin Speaker Series.
