How do we design cities to support human health and wellbeing? What would a healthy house look like? Or a school, an office block, or even a whole neighbourhood? We’re trying to find answers to these questions in our research.

Watch the animation above to find out more about how our research is making an impact in the real world: from helping to improve indoor air quality in schools to solving overheating in new and existing homes.
