There are thousands of design programs across the country, but not a single one focusing exclusively on design for human health from the human perspective. This really seems crazy when you think about it, as the built environment surrounds us in every facet of our lives and shapes physical and mental health in so many ways. From the choice between fluorescent lights versus natural daylighting, to what kind of materials to use in flooring and finishes (toxic, non-toxic), to heating, cooling and ventilation decisions, to flow and transportation within buildings and between buildings, every design decision impacts people’s health and wellbeing—either positively or negatively. Now is the time that design professionals take this subject to the next level. There are “healthcare design” specialty programs that teach designers how to design better hospitals and doctor’s offices, but there has never been an accredited US graduate design degree that focuses specifically on how to design the built environment (eg. offices, schools, homes) for optimal human health. Until now, that is! We’re thrilled to hear that Boston Architectural College has just launched a new masters degree program, Design for Human Health—the first graduate program in design studies that is broadly focused on the intersection between good design and human health.
