Active Design (AIA New York)
New York City’s award-winning Active Design Guidelines offer a manual of strategies for creating healthier buildings, streets, and urban spaces, based on the latest academic research and best practices in the field. Learn about creating healthier buildings, streets, and urban spaces from three of New York's experts in Active Design. Active Design 1 provides an overview of the connections between health and design of the built environment; cover the urban design and building-scale strategies included in the Guidelines; and explore the synergies between Active Design, environmental sustainability and universal accessibility. Active Design 2 delves into greater depth about the Building Design chapter of the Active Design Guidelines, the new LEED Design for Health through Increased Physical Activity Innovation Credit, and several case studies of architecture projects that implemented the Guidelines’ strategies
