Healthy Happy Cities in Tropical Environment
Time & Location
About The Event
At a time when wellbeing and happiness indexes are becoming more and more important to qualify our cities and make them more attractive, it seems important to understand how urban design and architecture can contribute to enhance wellbeing and happiness and develop these positive experiences further.
This project consists of 2 main phases:
- The creation of a shared digital platform to facilitate communication and the sharing of information concerning research and preparation of case studies. This platform will provide a toolbox to open new ways in transforming the cities to foster happy experiences, both physically and mentally. Furthermore, the tool will serve both educative and decision-making purposes.
- The organization of a milestones workshop creating the opportunity for a long-term French-Australian collaboration. This workshop will contribute to inform local communities and main key stakeholders in both countries on better integrated urban design in tropical environments. It will link the French School of Architecture of La Reunion (ENSAMR), within the Indian Pacific Region (Indians Ocean network of Architecture school, IONAS) with Australian universities such as Griffith University and James Cook University.
The innovation of this project is to offer a shared vision of experiencing life in the city, that encompasses local and visitors’ perspectives, and provide tools to transfer and adapt best practices.
