 5th International Conference on Empathic Architecture 


“Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being.” – J. Standord

Human spends a large proportion of their time indoors. A causal relationship exists between the indoor environment and human health (Boubekri, 2008). Architecture can impact human health, happiness, and physiological function (St-Jean et al., 2022). The architecture design should serve the user's individual and collective needs, protect the health, and encourage well-being. It is essential to seek a holistic understanding of the impact of architecture on human health and well-being.

Architectural design features, including color, light, complexity, and viewing nature, influence human behavior, health, happiness, and physiological function in many ways (St-Jean et al., 2022) and can have long-term implications for our quality of life. Architectural design should thus be responsive to user needs, inspire, motivate, give meaning, and be spirit caring.
