Imagining a Healthy City of the Future Brauer, Michael

Description

North American cities are auto-centric, but research shows that pollution, traffic noise, the amount of greenery, and walkability can all impact our health. For example, research shows that people who live close to a major road are more at risk of dying of heart disease. With this in mind, 2017 Wall Scholar Michael Brauer imagines what healthier cities could look like in the future.
