During this interactive session, Dr. Bruckner addressed the need for design to go beyond aesthetics and functionality. She invited the audience to envision and create human-centric spaces that prioritise human wellbeing and environmental stewardship. Exploring this inseparable paradigm, she then addressed each element.

Dr. Bruckner also stressed the deep links between design, nature, health, and sustainability, delving into the potential of spaces to empower individuals while promoting environmental wellbeing. Through discussing these connections, Christine elaborated on how they relate back to critical topics such as DEI (diversity, equity, inclusivity), circular design and resilient environments.

The presentation effectively demonstrated the tangible benefits of integrating specific principles into design projects that enhance the human experience. Additionally, Dr. Bruckner discussed our climate objectives, underscoring how each design choice can significantly influence human wellbeing and environmental health, and our commitment to achieving carbon neutrality in our projects.
