Health and the Built Environment provides a transdisciplinary overview of community, design and health for practicing professionals and academics. Produced in a handy, accessible format and written by a range of leading international authors, this series will provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between health and the environment. It will discuss key concepts such as restoration; healing and therapeutic environments; community health; integrated healthcare systems; evidence-based design; technology; city and public health; and sustainability, along with many more.
The series aims to foster greater accessibility to interdisciplinary research for practitioners working globally across the built environment and healthcare professions and increase awareness about current and emerging concepts in the design of healing environments and healthy communities.
Published as concise short-form guides or monographs, these books can be single authored or edited volumes on specific case studies or cutting-edge research looking at trends, developments and approaches to designing healthy environments. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for the series, please contact the Series Editor, Mohammad Gharipour ([email protected]), or the Commissioning Editor, Kate Schell(kathryn.sch[email protected]) with a brief outline of your project.
