Linking Cities and Obesogenic Behavior

Can a better understanding of the built environment help us to design the foodscape for healthy eating habits and ultimately good everyday lives?

I am currently doing some work with Gehl, a well-known urban design consultancy, which looks into how the structure and design of cities impacts the way we eat. The interdependent relationship between health, food systems, and the built environment is something that needs to be addressed in new ways in order to design, or in many cases, redesign cities to support a better quality of life.

Together with Sophia Schuff (Urban Anthropologist) and Jeff Risom (Chief Innovation Officer) from Gehl, we’ve put together a blog post on the project that we are currently working on in London.
