Healthier Built Environments bring more well-being!

Every corner of the city is surrounded by high-rise buildings, and there is little green and sunshine, which is harmful to the health of people who live in it for a long time. Green buildings provide people living in the city with an environmentally friendly and comfortable environment, and also bring happiness. Although we know that the quantity of green spaces in the cities can improve the well-being of city inhabitants and contact with natural environments can alleviate various psychological disorders, it is also likely that the quality of green spaces, including seemingly irrelevant landscape design nuances, can play a more important role for our mental health. Olszewska-Guizzo Agnieszka Anna published a review aims to show the current state of knowledge in the area of the visual quality of landscapes in urbanized areas and their influence on people’s mental health and well-being.
