Knowledge is an extraordinarily
potent tool
for achieving well-being.

Architecture

Built environments are typically used to describe the interdisciplinary field that addresses the design, construction, management, and use of these man-made surroundings as an interrelated whole as well as their relationship to human activities over time (rather than a particular element in isolation or at a single moment in time). The field is generally  drawing upon areas such as economics, law, public policy, public health,managment, geography, design, technology, and environmental sustainability. Within the field of public health, built environments are referred to as building or renovating areas in an effort to improve the community’s well-being through construction of “aesthetically, health improved, and environmentally improved landscapes and living structures”.Research has indicated that the way neighborhoods are created can affect both the physical activity and mental health of the communities’ residents, expecially within the urban context were chronic degenerative diseases are on the rise . For example, one may expect more physical activity and healthier diets among persons in communities with
convenient, safe walking paths and accessible sources of fresh fruits and vegetables. On the other hand, poorer health indicators may be expected among residents of communities with high crime rates, few parks or walking paths, numerous alcohol and tobacco outlets, and little access to fresh food.

Within this context the urban form is a key element to achieve and to maintaine wellbeing and health, since if the city is sick makes you sick.
