Better health through good design

Today we celebrate World Architecture Day 2022 with a new OVGA publication 'Good Design + Health'

Sunday, 2 October 2022 at 11:00 pm

This year’s theme for World Architecture Day is Architecture for well-being, which aligns with the designation of 2022 as UIA* Year of Design for Health.

Significant research demonstrates the link between good design and positive health outcomes. OVGA’s Case for Good Design: Healthcare highlights some evidence.

Our most recent publication 'Good Design + Health' looks beyond buildings when describing the value of good design to our health. It calls for a rounded understanding of how to create healthy places of high social value for all Victorians.
