Healthabitat is a collective using design methodology to examine, quantify and repair the links between architecture and health. Founding directors Paul Pholeros (an architect), Paul Torzillo (a thoracic surgeon) and Stephan Rainow (a public and environmental health officer) began their work in the mid-1980s, and to date have improved almost 8000 houses across Australia, with their reach now stretching internationally. In the below video, their first for CUSP, Healthabitat introduce us to their process and the links between architecture and health. For more on Healthabitat, visit their designer page.
