Call Summary:

On January 1st, 2020, the world woke to news that a pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan, China, had been identified as a strain of coronavirus. By March, the World Health Organization would define it as a pandemic. The response from professionals and academics was immediate with the design world forced to collaborate with collegues from helath related disciplpines: public health officials became consultants on ‘healthy buildings’, infectious disease specialists advised on planning codes, sociologists re-examined behaviour in public space, and more. While it is tempting to see this recent global concern about health and environments as new, the reality is, it has a long history. ‘Sick building syndrome’ housing for the elderly, accessible design, and the broader healthy cities agenda globally, all pre-date Covid-19. Seen in this light, this conference seeks to bring recent experiences and responses into dialogue with these longer standing areas of research into health, wellbeing and environments.
