Preventative design: how to build healthy, sustainable communities

Organised by: Architecture & Design Scotland



How do you create healthy and sustainable places that support people’s wellbeing by taking a preventative approach?

Join Architecture and Design Scotland for an event looking at preventative design-led approaches to solving place issues and long-term planning.


Preventative design in the context of place-making means thinking ahead during the design phase to anticipate potential issues by incorporating features into places that promote safety, well-being, and positive social interaction. A collaborative, proactive approach helps visualise and test the development of, and changes to places, to meet the challenges of sustainable places and the well-being of the people who use them.

Confirmed speakers include Ewan Anderson of 7N Architects, Rekha Barry-Houston of Anderson Bell Christie, Kevin McGeough of Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, Christine Owen of Innovation Unit and Rodney Mountain, Surgeon and Healthcare Improver.
