Students attend sustainable wellbeing event at HOK Studios London

On 13 June students from the Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings MSc attended an industry event hosted by HOK.


The event was an interactive debate session followed by 45 minutes of presentations from key industry experts.  HOK invited sustainable design and wellness experts to talk about how a human centric approach can be integrated into processes of making and education.


It is great to see professionals from industry and school sharing their opinions about sustainable wellbeing together. As a student, the research topics they focus on and the experience they share were really interesting and useful to me. Various cases of innovative design remind me that wellbeing is not only related to architects and interior designers but building engineers even HR. To promote Well Design, it needs people from every position to fully cooperate. And the research about Well Design is still a huge and interesting world to explore.
