About the course

Welcome to this course on Well Being! This course is open-to-all and is structured into three modules that largely address the importance of the design of built environments and its impact on well-being. The First Module looks into what well-being essentially is and the kinds of well-being; along with brief exercises to explore the relationship between well-being and the built & unbuilt environment. In the next module, we will look at the different aspects of building design such as daylight, scale and proportion, acoustics, biophilic design, and the impact of building design on mental health. The last module focuses on Rating Systems and Building Codes, and the applications of glass! Enrol to learn more!
