Natasha spoke to Wellwatching about prioritising wellbeing, human outcomes, and community participation in architecture and design.
Together they discuss what needs prioritising when thinking of making places for people, how a more holistic approach to wellbeing in architectural design is needed and what are the next big trends for the future.
"the industry status quo has been about creating assets that serve a certain function - rather than creating human outcomes – which ultimately separates people and communities from their environment, essentially their habitat. Covid in particular has reminded us that we’re all part of a single ecosystem, individually and collectively.
The more we consider what we create in the context of human wellbeing as well as the planet’s wellbeing, the better off we will be"
