While shifts in atti­tudes towards the design of com­mu­ni­ty envi­ron­ments and health­care facil­i­ties have been increas­ing­ly impor­tant in the last decades espe­cial­ly in Europe, the USA, Aus­tralia, and Cana­da, the new pan­dem­ic era reignites some peren­ni­al issues as well as demands for new solu­tions. Neigh­bor­hood envi­ron­ments, parks, children’s hos­pi­tals, birthing cen­ters, aging care facil­i­ties as well as local clin­ics and hos­pi­tals have influ­enced health and behav­ior out­come, espe­cial­ly among the dis­ad­van­taged pop­u­la­tions such as chil­dren and old­er adults. More than ever as Covid-19 dis­rupts our engage­ment with one anoth­er and the world at large forc­ing us to reflect and rethink the inter­sec­tions of urban plan­ning, archi­tec­tur­al and land­scape designs, and pub­lic health.

This Inter­dis­ci­pli­nary Vir­tu­al Con­fer­ence draws atten­tion to the his­tor­i­cal and con­tem­po­rary con­texts with­in which healthy com­mu­ni­ties and health­care facil­i­ties-relat­ed projects get real­ized as well as how their per­for­mances and out­comes are mea­sured. In a pan­dem­ic era, con­fer­ence pre­sen­ters explore how issues of class, gen­der, eth­nic­i­ty, and age con­tribute intel­lec­tu­al­ly and lit­er­al­ly shap­ing designs and their exe­cu­tion. Draw­ing on the­o­ret­i­cal frame­works and empir­i­cal obser­va­tions, pre­sen­ters explore insights and ques­tions which arise through cross-dis­ci­pli­nary dia­logues and exam­ine how social and iden­ti­ty pol­i­tics shape the archi­tec­ture of care and are work­ing to build bet­ter heal­ing spaces.

The day is orga­nized around the fol­low­ing themes with invit­ed keynote speak­ers and pre­sen­ters for each session:

* Archi­tec­ture for Healthcare
* Archi­tec­ture of care dur­ing Pandemics
* Land­scapes for Health
* Envi­ron­men­tal Health and Human Health
