COVID in Focus: How Our Homes Impact Our Health

11:00 AM EDT - 11:30 AM EDT



The COVID-19 global health crisis is undeniably a global housing crisis. This summer, Dr. Terri Peters (Assistant Professor, Department of Architectural Science) led a study on quality of life in urban mid- and high-rise apartment housing in the context of COVID-19. The research team identified synergies between passive design strategies and health-promoting architecture or “restorative environmental design,” and proposed evidence-based recommendations for health promoting apartment housing design, post-pandemic.

Event hosted by City Building Ryerson.
