Conversations around public health, architecture, and cities
Studio X 180 Varick Street New York, NY

This symposium, entitled Conversations around Public Health, Architecture, and Cities, is being co-sponsored by the Mailman School of Public Health and the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP), at Columbia University. It will take place on April 22, 2014 from 8:30 – 3:45, in GSAPP’s Studio X located at 180 Varick Street. The event is informed by an appreciation of the ever-growing role of the urban environment in shaping the health of populations, both in the US and globally. Urban environments, including physical, social, and service spaces shape the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the food we eat. Emerging evidence suggests that the urban environment shapes how we feel, think, and behave. This understanding animates scholarship that must, definitionally, exist at the interstices of public health and urban planning/architecture. It is the intent of this meeting to explore these interstices. The symposium will feature talks and panel discussions addressing our understanding of cities and their role in shaping public health, how we can learn from case studies, and how we can set an agenda for building healthy cities in the future.
