What is Active Design?

Active Design is an evidence-based approach to development that identifies urban planning and architecture solutions to support healthy communities.

Inspired by the precedent of design impacting public health in the 19th century as recognized by the massive reduction in the spread of infectious diseases, Active Design builds on health research showing that design can impact today's biggest challenges around the physical, mental, and social well-being of communities around the world.
