Evidence continues to mount on the intimate relationship between built form and the opportunities afforded those who live and work in cities, in health, wellbeing, employment, education. Researchers within the Sustainable, Liveable and Resilient Cities theme are focusing upon how urban communities experience the built form and how this interacts with the city’s sustainability, liveability and resilience priorities. The three guiding questions are: To what degree is wellbeing “baked” into the urban fabric? What does this mean for urban sustainability, liveability and resilience? What are the implications for urban design and regeneration practices?
